    Upper Ball Joint Question

    Does anybody know what to torque the three upper ball joint mounting bolts to? I got some global west upper control arms and new ball joints but they don't have the torque specs, these are the bolts that mount the joint to the control arm not the castle nut that connects the ball joint to the steering knuckle, thanks in advance

    That's what I did. The torque spec on those aren't as crucial as say the control arms themselves.
