I'm about to have a mechanic friend replace all rubber in the front of one of our 240s. Since he has a couple of apprentices, they may be inflicted on our car. So I'm collecting torque settings from the Volvo green book I found online. In it, Volvo lists torque settings for everything except the the stabilizer bar (sway bar) link ends! (The book just says "tighten".)
How much do you tighten the top nut/compress the new rubber bushings at the top of the link end? Also, how much should the lower end of the same link end be tightened?
I also cannot find torque settings for the two "U" brackets that bolt over the sway bar bushings and attach the front sway bar to the body of the car... Anyone?
