Torque for rear stabilizer link

I did a quick search and couldn't find it ....anybody know the torque specs of the rear stabilizer link for the upper bolt and then the lower nut at the bushing? Thanks.

I just got done doing this about a month ago and if I remember right it’s around 70-80 ft/lbs.

Take them back out, toss them in that coffee can full of bolts (the one that has "Metric" scribbled on it with a sharpie), toss the links on the scrap metal pile in the corner of your garage, and enjoy about double the rear end articulation, depending on your shocks. Before wheeling, jack the frame up until the tire lifts and make sure the brake line is not the limiting factor.

^ double the articulation, but about double the likelihood of failing the moose test as well. Disconnects are cheap and give you the best of both worlds when you need it.

It's an evasive maneuver test, like what you would do if you were trying to avoid a moose in the road. Sway bars help keep you right side up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moose_test
