I am in the process of installing my Bilstein B8 struts, and have a question about the torque spec for the strut nut.
Factory is 44 ft/lb, should I torque to that?
Bilstein says 34 ft/lb which seems low?
Any advice would be appreciated!
The upper strut nut is going to be supplied by bilstein with the shock, so I'd say you're safe to use their spec. If you're concerned that it'll come loose I wouldn't be, but you'd probably also be clear to split the difference and torque to 39 ft lbs!
