Torque Specs for front end suspension/steering

Post by broadusc » Tue Mar 20, 2018 7:21 pm

This weekend I'm swapping out the control arms, sway bar end links, and tie rod ends. I'm having a hard time finding the torque specs on the interwebs for those parts. Anyone know where I could find that info for a 2000 Volvo V40?

From Haynes manual:

Control arms: "Balljoint nut 49 ft-lbs; Front pivot bolt 66 ft-lbs; Rear mounting clamp bolts 66 ft-lbs"

Suspension strut: "Piston nut 48 ft-lbs; Strut-to-swivel hub bolts 66 ft-lbs; Upper mounting nuts 33 ft-lbs"

Sway bar: "Anti-roll bar connecting link nuts: 33 ft-lbs"

Tie rod ends: "Balljoint locknut 31 ft-lbs; Balljoint-to-swivel hub nut* 18 ft-lbs; Inner balljoint-to-sterring rack 65 ft-lb".

"* If the split pin holes are not correctly aligned at the specified torque, tighten the nut slightly more to bring the holes into alignment"
