    Default Torque setting?

    According to the Workshop manual the torque setting for the "Transverse link mounting bolt" is 79.6 to 94 ft lbs... I am feeling that this is a lot. Can anyone confirm that this is correct?

    Also I need to confirm that this is for the nut that goes on the end of the bolt that has half of the threaded shaft missing that goes thru this bushing (#14 in the picture below when it is installed in the transverse link):
    .



    .

    The transverse link (part 16) and the nut to torque is number #18


    .


    Do I have this all correct?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    The torque value is correct. The bushing is directional (front vs. rear)

    Thanks... I actually didn't replace the bushing.. it didn't want to come out and it seems to be in decent shape so I decided to leave it alone.

    Did I make a mistake with that?

    Perhaps, but not as serious a mistake as breaking something trying to get it off.

    During reinstall, before I bolted things to the outboard end, I could move the transverse link left/right seeing the rubber bushing flex some. It was not loose, broken or hard as a rock - I got a bit of flex... I think it's ok.

    And yes, when I was trying to knock the old bushing out (I don't own a press) I was banging on it pretty good (using a socket sized to line up against the bushing's steel sleeve) and it didn't want to move. I didn't want to deform the transverse link....

    So I stripped the nut (and I think the bolt). Am I royally screwed or is there a source for this odd bolt?

    Anyone know the thread pitch/diameter on these?

    Arrrrggghhhh...

    Nut - 08912-84410
    Washer - 56114-09400

    My guess is you will need to make a trip to fastenal or something like that for an equivalent grade 10.9 bolt. Have you checked MSA? They seem to have an odd assortment of nuts and bolts.

    This is not going to be at any general hardware supplier:

    Ouch, guess not then. I didn't realize that it was flat on one side.

    So... can anyone tell me the purpose of the cut bolt and this matching "washer"? It appears to facilitate some adjustment of the transverse link but I cannot find reference to it in the workshop manual....

    Mark:

    See the other post. Those bolts are not stock. This is a "clever" (other may have a different word for it...) attempt at camber adjusting me thinks.

    I have the same or similar that I have been unable to remove without damage. The washers are made of aluminum and are galled tightly onto the bolts. I think you will be able to substitute the bolt & nut with an aftermarket alternative if they are NLA.

    Edit: Here is a better view of the stock bolt, nut, washer and bushing (15, 16, 17, 14).

    What you have in you car is a camber adjustment kit from Specialty Products

    http://www.spcalignment.com/PROD_DIR...d2=83115&cmd3=

    When I took my car in to get it aligned at Les Schwab. the guy pulled that exact kit out saying it was the oldest parts he had and was shocked that he had it at all in the first place.

    Check out the installation instructions, what they do with that is cut a larger hole in your front cross brace 54401-E4100. install the eccentric and adjust your camber. You can never go back, once the hole is cut the stock bolt will no longer fit. To be stock again you would need to get a new cross brace.

    YIKES... so what was installed was the stock bushing and this kit - that means the "insides" were not correct for the "outsides". I THINK this is really not good, dangerous even.
