i'm betting somebody has a 73 FSM here and can give me the torque specs for the torsion bar crossmember mount bolts, K frame bolts, upper control arm pivot nuts, upper and lower ball joint nuts and tie rod / idler arm / pitman arm nuts........your help would be much appreciated. i got everthing from just suspension, but i got rubber control arm bushings and polygraphite K frame and torsion bar crossmember bushings. according to the included paperwork i am to use the factory torque specs on the PG bushings and retorque them after some road time. supposedly the PG bushings in the K and torsion members will stiffen this baby up a little without destroying the ride quality.......here's hoping!

For the lower ball joint, is that the torque setting for the threaded or non-threaded? Mine came with threaded. Also, I hate how the factory manual has absolutely no picture of the floating torsion bar rear crossmember piece, but from the description in the manual (presuming it's referring to the same piece), it does state 75 ft. lbs. as the other gentleman stated. I'm using solid bushings, but I presume the torque is the same...
