Front only. No need to remove rear swaybar linkage.

DUDE!!!! You kick ass. I've been looking for this info forever! Where did you get the values from? Do you have torque specs for the rear install?

The last picture is the rear install. Couldnt really figure out one of them, but it was very tight, so tighten as much as possible.

When is the darn full shop manual going to come out? We should not have to go through such measures to get torque values. Thanks indeed for the very useful post. Most thoughtful.

Nice, rzm3 ... now you can update your original post with the top nut torque specs.

Does anyone know what torque to tighten the front strut hat nuts (the ones that hold the front strut to the strut tower)?

What does “64 Nm or 47 ftlb” refer to?
OK, I’m a bit confused here. In the second diagram it shows “64 Nm or 47 ftlb” pointing to the top of the strut assembly, yet it looks like the next diagram shows 37 Nm or 27 ftlb pointing to the nut which goes on top of the shock. What does the “64 Nm or 47 ftlb” actually refer to? Is that shaft of the EDC shock supposed to be tightened? I thought the shaft just spins in place and the bolt (37 Nm or 27 ftlb) on top of the strut is what you are actually worried about tightening.
This might be obvious, but I need some direction here

Yes, I know which is front and rear. So the bolt on the top of the front strut is 47 ftlb then?
I guess I was confused by those last couple of posts [I]PunjabiM3 Does anyone know what torque to tighten the front strut hat nuts (the ones that hold the front strut to the strut tower)? rzm3 34Nm [/i]
