Wishbone torques

Post by peterekaj »

Hi, just rebuilding front end of my GT(1980) but cannot seem to fine a definitive torque value for the A pivot inner wishbone bushes, does anyone know this value. Thanks

Hi Peter,
My ROM describe these as lower arm nuts & refer to the"torque wrench settings" - that says 38Nm or 28lbf ft & then align to next split pin hole.
Cheers,
