    Hi all I fitted new suspension at the weekend and everything was spot on! Last night I decided to give it a once over to check I tightened everything back up properly and I didn't miss anything. Reason for that was because I was extremely hung-over when I fitted the rears so wanted to make sure my car was safe!
    I tightened the the lower shock bolts right up as tight as I could which I now think may have been a bad Idea as its now creaking quite a bit lol!
    My question is does anyone know torque settings for rear shock bolts? I have searched but can't find anything?

    Any help will be much appreciated!
