    I'm guessing you mean in the rear. Are you talking about a lower control arm bolt or the camber arm?

    Best way that I found is to take the toe link off. If you have the factory links be sure to mark where the adjuster is set before removing.

    Once the toe link is out of the way you can use an end wrench through the ears where the toe link mounts to tighten the bolt.

    No real easy way to torque it to spec with that method. After what it took to break mine loose I just went with as tight as I could possibly go with giving that end wrench all I had.

    Changed the links, I really wish someone from the Forum would contact Imgur and get unblocked.

    BMR says 184 ft# for the front LCA in the BMR CB006 front brace instructions. The clocking diagram shows this to be the arrow on the yellow lateral link

    Hmm I'll have to ask [MENTION=9985]BMR Tech[/MENTION] about that one since he said 164 in the first reply to this thread.

    Does anyone know the factory torque for the rear upper shock nuts? Not the two on the shock mount

    Confusing question because there are only 4 bolts holding in the shocks, 2 lower and 2 upper. The 2 upper are on the shock mounts, there aren't any other. The other is they are bolts rather than nuts. So assuming you mean the torque on the 2 upper blots for the shocks, it is 66 lb ft. For reference, the lower bolts are torqued to 35 lb ft.

    Ahh that makes sense now, that's the shock absorber rod nut. Torque it to 22 lb ft.
