Re: Installing Koni's tomorrow... Advice/torque specs
The main thing to watch out for, is that the 3 upper strut mount bolts (that you torque from within the engine bay on the strut towers) are only 25-30 ft/lbs -- a few people (including me) have snapped one of those assuming it would be higher toque there. All the big lower bolts, I don't use a torque wrench on, just get as tight as reasonably possible with either an impact or a quick little extra push with a breaker bar.
When swapping out the stock springs, make sure you get them completely unloaded with a spring compressor before taking of the upper mounts, or else the upper mounts have a lovely tendency to pop open and spill bearings everywhere. Not fun to clean up, regrease, and put back together right. A lot of people end up buying a new upper mount bearing assembly instead when that happens. That's really the only thing to watch out for.
