Lugnug Torque Spec
 
Hi. Can anybody tell me what the lug nut torque spec for the 2001 ZX3's are?
I looked all over the owner's manual but I can find anything there.
I even called up a Ford dealer and they said it's like 100-120 ft-lb... [eek]
That seems awfully high to me. Sounds like an easy way to wrap the rotor. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I was told from Discount Tire Co. to keep it around 90-100 depending on how I drive it. 120 is a bit high.

i use a 80lb torque stick on most small 4-5 lug cars, 100 lb would be fine and won't warp the rotor.
