Can we get verification of the 4 bolts you need? Is 30ft/lbs correct for these?

Can someone look up the torque spec for the strut nuts at the bracket locations?

Techinfo article coming.

Default Bolts?

After reading this post, I am seriously considering this mod.

One question still remains - what is the correct bolt size?

The correct bolt is a metric M8 x 50mm long.
A 13 mm socket will fit it.
