Hi There

Would anyone know the torque for the front upper strut mount ??
I just put on the daytech lift kit and they say 85 foot pounds and that seams like a lot
i was at about 50 and the rubber of the upper ring was starting to get messed up
I have the MB service manual but i cant find it in there

Thanks

I looked up what I have but since I don't quite understand the lingo I'll list them:

All values in Nm except stage 2, which is degree angle

Nut, link rod to suspension strut 58
Nut, suspension strut to rebound buffer 45
Bolt, fastening shackle of suspension strut to swiveling bearing stage 1 30
Stage 2 180 degrees
Axle housing, steering knuckle
Nut, flange ball joint to swivel bearing 50
Tie rod
Self-locking nut, tie rod to steering knuckle 34 (I believe these are one time use, meaning buy new ones)

Best of luck!
