Q: I cannot find the torque specific to add a strut bar

asked by on

Trying to add the bar but need the specs

My car has 33678 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Assuming you are referring to the top 3 12mm nuts, these should be torqued to 14-20lbs. These are very delicate, so use caution when tightening.
