Lower control arm torque specs

Does any body have the proper torque specs for the following

1. Lower ball joint (there are 2 nuts)
2. Sway bar link (lower) torx bolt
3. Lower Control arm nut and bolt
4. Lower Shock nut and bolt

I don't have the cd or any kind of book to check..

This is for a 1998 E430 W210

Rest assured, if I had a W 210 I would tell you.
On the other hand, if you had a lowely W 202 like mine, I could tell you right now.

Phouse,

Did anyone ever get you the torque specs for your front suspension project?

I'm getting ready to do mine (w140) and I'm also having trouble locating torque specs.

Thanks,
Russell

gosh... I have a new torque wrench I'm wanting to use. Torque values must be a "Trade secret" for the MB industry. I suscribe to AllData and there are very few torque vaules listed. Surely there is a reference book somewhere.

Thanks for replying.

Russell
