QUICK HELP NEEDED! Bolt Torque Values - LCA

So after 65 minutes of plowing through the MB Service Manual CD, I give up. I need the torque values for the following bolts:

Guide Rod Bolt in LCA

Shock Absorber Mount Bolts (lower and upper)

Spring Mount Plate Bolts (I assume Guten Tighte but want to be sure).

LCA Bushing/Eccentric Pin Bolt

I did find that the three Guide Rod Mount Bolts should be 35nm.

I'm getting ready to tear down the front end in a few minutes (thats why I'm in a hurry).

after <4 minutes looking in the paper version of the service manual :

guide rod bolt in lower control arm: 50Nm (tightened after the 3 bolts holding the support to the frame are tightened and the eccentric bolt is installed through the bushing)

shock absorber
-upper: tighten to bottom of threads (then tighten lock nut). don't allow shaft to rotate
-lower: 20Nm

spring pad bolts: 20Nm

eccentric/bushing bolt/nut: 180Nm (after vehicle has been lowered)

this can be found in section 33-512 of volume 1 of chassis and body model 123.
hope this helps. i love paper service manuals for this very reason.
