Within one week of taking delivery of my 07, I put a small rock through my AC condenser - It was under $200 to fix, but very frustrating! Wasnít going to let this happen again.

All nuts?

All nuts? No, that would be nearly impossible and impracticle - For example, you would need to drop the track bar to check the torque on the pitman arm nut as it is direct alignment with the nut.
