I replaced the complete track rod and ends etc and just wanted to check the torque settings.

I have the track rod ends at 63 Ft Ibs
Damper to track rod bolt at 50
The clamp where the damper attaches to - ?
Tie rod end clamp at 45

Are these correct?

Everything on the page is Ft/LBS unless noted.
The trac bar torque is 125 and from what I read is very important.
I had to go to Home Depot and buy a $90 Torque Wrench :-(
Also those bolts are rated 10 if I remember. It is stamped on the Head.
Be careful if you replace them with lower rated. They could snap off.
I hope this helps.
I has some death wobble.
Mine was solved with the trac bar. #1 reason for the wobble.
After I got new tires rotors and brakes due to worn tires and had a wiggle at 70MPH if I touched my brakes.
I replaced the damper but that just hides the issue.
I hope this helps
