I'm about to install some Camber bolts, and was wondering about how I should torque up the original lower bolt after fitting.

I understand the torque spec of the original bolts is something like 180 ft lbs. I've also seen 255Nm mentioned.

What is the correct torque spec?

How many people have a torque wrench big enough for this job? Can I get away without one, just using a breaker bar and guesswork?

1993 repair manual states 173NM

Rear - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-dpUpxzr96YcXRMNWdKVjByTHM/view?usp=sharing

Front - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-dpUpxzr96Ya0JQbHNjSTBTdkE/view?usp=sharing

Most 1/2inch drive torque wrenches should be able to manage that.

1991 Toyota MR2 Mk2 NA Rev1

Just checked 91 bgb and this states 188 ft-lb, 255 Nm

Realistically an 18" breaker bar done up pretty tight will suffice. I have changed out my shocks a couple of times and reused these bolts and just done them up tight! No probs

I think the 1991 edition is a typo personally. Certainly wouldn't be the only example of an earlier edition BGB getting a torque value wrong / conversion factor wrong.

Ok thanks.

So basically, if I apply around 56Kg to the end of an 18" breaker bar, that should do it.
