How tight is 20-35Ft lbs of torque? (sway bar)
I found some instructions on the forums here thru the search function, However, it says to tighten down the end links to something like 30ft lbs. Now I am by no means a mechanic, and I have just barely make a 'backyard mechanic status' I dont know how much 'force' 30ft lbs is.
I bought a new wrench, I found an old wrench with the offset alot more 'severe' but it was of the wrong size, so I took that up to sears, along with the wrench i broke, and got the right size for $18.... and exchanged the broken one for a made in the USA wrench...
So I got the nut tight, and its pretty tight, I got the bed up 6inchs or so, and i can just barely move the wrench.... but I dunno how tight it should be.
What would REALLY make this 'job' ALOT easier, would be an offset wrench, with the ratcheting end... this summer if I see any at the flea market ima buy em...
