I just finished one side, it took me about two hours ... I'm so slow ... but, I'm thorough. The only nut I couldn't find a way to get a torque wrench on was the one on the frame side of the torque arm. I basically just turned it as hard as I could with a long open-ended wrench but hopefully can find a way to put the 70nm on it because I like to be sure ... I have a crow's foot set but it wouldn't reach in there. The FSM shows something that looks like a long crow's foot.
I hit my limit on cold, so I'll have to do the other side tomorrow, hopefully will go a little faster now that I know my way around.
