Can somebody email Reed and ask him to add this to the FAQ? Or tell me where to email him at? I'd hate for this to go to waste :)
I already printed it and put it in my hard folder along with everything else I've been fortunate enough to see. I recommend it for all repair threads and maintainence threads. There are quite a few. And you have them when your under the car.
Thanks for the great addition.

yeah i could if i wanted to, but its a good thing i asked...after i tightened them w/ a 24 inch breaker bar, turned out they were nowhere near 130 lbft. Im anal about using a torque wrench, i use em every day at work. Which leads me to the LOWER rear A-Arm bolt, anybody have a torque value on that? I went ahead and torqued to 130 considering same grade and size, but i want to double check....

I've taken the write-up instructions from Lollygagger with the recent uploaded pictures, added the notes from ewill3rd, as well as the torque specs, and put everything together in a nice printable PDF for your viewing and printing pleasure. Thanks again for your write up!
