Sway bar end links - Torque specs??

Just as it says. The bolts on my sway bar end links in the front have backed off a bit. Can someone tell me the Proper Torque specs??

Backed off?? How could they do that? Did someone change them and not get them tight? Any of those I have ever changed came with locking nuts, and they don't just back off.

36 ft-lbs. Not sure what it meant by backing off either. Usually dirt cakes on the threads and many people have trouble getting them off, not keeping them on.

The dealership replaced them when they did the bushings about a month ago. These nuts were not lock nut type. They came loose and I found that both top nuts were only about 1/3 of the way threaded on. I just replaced them tonight with new ones (got them from the dealership, service dept not open).

Thanks for the info.
