Default Really?

I read in the ford service manual that the lower strut to control arm bolt has a torque spec of over 400 ft. lbs. How are you all accomplishing this spec when lowering your trucks



Happy Thanksgiving

Whaaat?!?!?! I dont know about that but I didnt use a torque wrench when I lowered mine and it was fine. Although the first time I swapped LCA's I didn't use a torque wrench either and the alignment bolt got loose. I think it required 80lbs.
