    Does the rear shock upper bolt have a torque spec?

    That holds the upper mount to the shock body.

    Thanks

    I'm about to R&R my front and rear calipers to paint them and install new brake pads, and wanted to verify the rear caliper to bracket bolt torque value. This list has it listed as 24 ft/lb, but that sounds low to me.

    Anyone have a source for that?

    Also, can the OP add the rear caliper bracket bolts? They're 129 ft/lb, and I found that information here: http://performanceparts.ford.com/download/instructionsheets/FordInstShtM-FR3A-M8.pdf

    TIA!

    Thanks so much for the spark plugs. I freaked out a sec because I thought it was foot pounds. It says inch pounds. :cheers:

    If this is going to be a sticky thread, can we either rename it and clean it up a little or create new? Looking in the Helm manual, there is absolutely no difference in suspension torque for GT/V6/EB. Anything powertrain related should be in a separate thread. That way we don't have all the confusion or people wondering, well I have a V6 or an EB, what are my torque numbers? Or should we have a sticky thread for V6 and one for EB in separate threads or is GT the only one that matters?

    I went through the first post and verified. Additions are in green and incorrect is red.
