Suspension Torque Settings

I have a 2015 Focus Titanium 1.5TDCi that I'm planning on lowering over Christmas. I have warranty friendly Eibach Pro-Kit springs to fit.

Anyone know the torque settings for all the suspension fasteners?

Sam.

Go to the post linked below to get the service manual. It has the torque values you need.

Anyone need a 2012/2013 shop manual?

This manual only cover the MK3 not MK3.5

Torque specs could be wrong on a refresh model.

EDIT: especially when they changed the strut assembly on 2014+ models

Do they even have the Haynes manual in stores yet for the mk3? It's convenient to have versus reopening my phone everytime I want to look. I prefer the book method.

It's probably at least ballpark. I bet all the fasteners are still same size, which is going to dictate torque values.

Yeah , it was just a cautious note ...
We don't want a new topic like... help I stripped my strut nut (but in the manual 2012-2013 it said xxx ft-lbs)

Sometimes small details like this DO make a difference ;)

Ford sell their books but $$$, if it wasn't because I have access to ALLDATA I would purchase the Official Fords service manuals for the focus.

Here you go, straight from the online Workshop manual(Dealership technician has its advantages). Happy modding!
