Factory manual goofup: What'* the right torque setting
...for those two big-*ss nuts that secure the bottom of the front strut to the steering knuckle?
I'm looking at doing the job on my '93 soon, so I got out the manual and found the procedure on pages 3C-3 and 3C-4. Fine, except the text says that the two large nut-and-bolt assemblies at the bottom of the strut get 190 N·m (140 lb. ft.), but the _diagram_ for the procedure (Figure 5) very clearly says that they're supposed to get 75 N·m (55 Lb. Ft.)
They're not even _close_ to agreeing with each other; what gives? Can somebody look this up in a post-1993 manual and see if they ever got this straightened out?
