    There is generally nothing unusual or manufacturer specific about torque specs. It's usually based on nothing more than fastener grade and diameter. When in doubt just use any of the readily available torque tables such as this one.
    http://www.engineershandbook.com/Tables/torque.htm
    Measuring fastener diameter is easy and head marking references for grade are also all over the internet.

    Not sure there is one. On the "Snug" to "Put some ass into it" scale, I've always defaulted to "Put some ass into it". Not sure how that translates into Newtons or footpounds though. Sorry. :)

    Can anyone tell me if I got this right? Guys at Camburg told me to use 120lbs on the nut where there UCA bolts to the spindle. I made this so it was a bit easier to see when I print it out.

    my build tread: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/socal-no-shame-poser-build.513084/
    Factory is 110 its on first page under 4x4 front suspension. If camburg says 120 then its 120. Now some of the other torques look off shouldnt the uca nit be 82lbs not 115

    Simple. Use this (or any one of a gillion just like it) torque spec guide for your size bolt. They are grade 8.
