Does anyone know where I can find the torque specs for the OEM front upper and lower a-arms? I tried doing a search but every post with the word "a" in it came up.
Couldn't find it on the net either.

upper control arm bolts to hold the cross shaft to frame- 48 lbs/ft

The bushing nuts/bolts need to be torqued when the car is sitting with full weight on the suspension:
upper control arm bushing nuts - 85 lbs/ft
lower control arm bushings to frame- 65 lbs/ft

Hope that helps.
