    Torque specs for a rear sway bar install?

    I have the H&R rear sway bar on order. Anybody have the torque specs for the end links and the brackets?
    Also, should any of the bolts and the nuts be replaced?
    I see ECS Tuning has a kit for the front sway bar with the items that need to be replaced, but there is none for the rear.

    Not sure on the torque settings, but I think the 4 triple-square bolts and the 2 end-link bolts need to be replaced since a 90-degree stretch is required after torquing them.

    EDIT: From Eurocode's manual -- 29.5 ft/lb for the end-link bolts; 18.4 ft/lb for the triple-square bushing bolts. Each require a 90-degree stretch. It's for the EC sway and end-links, but I would imagine that's close for the H&R bar with the stock end-links.

    H&R manual will say. Mine is in the garage somewhere. Get new bolts. This is important because Audi says they are one time use bolts. The torque procedure is to torque to spec, then give 1/4 turn more to stretch them. For that reason, they should not be reused.
    If you get H&R, get yourself some new bolts. I did not and they came lose several times until I did.
