Over the past two days I have installed BMR standard length rear lower control arms, Bilstein 0929's, and cleaned up, flipped over and re-installed the HA rear bar. All went well. No lost skin just some bruises on the forearms where I had to reach up through the rear suspension to get at the top shock mounts. (BTW, reversing the top bolts to have the nuts on the bottom made the install a lot easier. Thanx to who ever originally posted that trick.)
I'm now going to do the the 1104's in the front. The basic install is no problem but my question is "how do you torque the top nut down to spec. when you can't use a torque wrench"? The allen key has to go in to hold the shaft from moving so the only thing you can use is a box end wrench on the nut. The FSM torque spec is 97 in-lbs (about 8 ft-lbs.) and the Bilstein spec is 19 ft-lbs. Is there a indicator of the amount of squish on the bushings that can be estimated. The only other way I can see to do it is crow foot wrench on the torque wrench, if it will fit in.
