Question
Im a mechanic and know usually in a shop a lot of bolts are not torqued. Like tie rod ends, ball joint nuts and suspension parts. But when I do my car I take the extra time to try to torque bolts down.
So my question is: I'm doing both of my inner tie rods this weekend and can't find the tightening torque spec for the inners. I found outer @ 80 ft-lbs. Anyone know what it is?
