I search the torque specs and found almost everything I needed for the front end. While searching, I had to click on numerous links and thought about posting ALL of the specs in one thread so everyone can benefit. As our cars age, front end work will be common. I'll have a moderator put a "sticky" on it so everyone can find it.

Torque Specs I found:
Front
Upper Ball Joint - 55 - 63 ft lbs.
Lower Ball Joint - 75 - 80 ft lbs.
Inner & Outter Tie Rods - 35 ft lbs.
Centerlink - 35 ft lbs.
Idler - 35 ft lbs.
Upper control arm shaft - 92 ft lbs.
Swaybar endlinks - 15 ft lbs.
Upper ball joint mounting bolts (4) - "I just tightened them as tight as I could get them with my 1/4" drive ratchet. They've been on there for about 25K miles and haven't loosened or fallen off yet, so I must have done something right." - Ed

Rear
Upper arms - frame - ???
Upper arms - axle - ???
Lower arms - frame - ???
Lower arms - Axle - ???
Swaybar - ???

Any corrections or additions?

From the 1995 FSM:
Front lower control arm nut.....92 lb.ft.

also

Front upper control arm pivot shaft nut....70 lb.ft.

And a comment - Torque of upper ball joint mounting bolts might depend on the manufacturer of the replacement ball joint. Best to follow their instructions.
