    Exclamation NEED TORQUE SPECS, help please

    Does anyone have the bolt torque spec for the rear lower control arm for a 1999 f-body, I replaced my stock bushings with energy poly's and I tightened the hell o ut of them but I just want to make sure they are at the proper spec. Any info or links would be great.

    According to the Haynes 1993-2002 Camaro/Firebird Repair Manual:

    1993-2001 = 80ft/lbs

    2002 = 87ft/lbs

    If you overtighten these, you will experience a noise problem.

    Also, the bolts should be torqued while the suspension is loaded.

    You're welcome!

    You can get the Haynes Manual (#24017) at AutoZone or Pep Boys.
    They only cost $10-$15.
