Default KW suspension install

Anyone fitted KW suspension to their 964. What torque setting is used on the rear lower arm?
I am sure the OEM is supposed to be 148ft. Is this correct or too tight for KW application.
Any help would be appreciated.

Are you talking about the front? Oem front lower bolts are 100 ft lbs.

Rear lower bolt is 135 ft lbs

145 are the 22mm bolts on the spring plates to the trailer arm...

Just want to point one thing out, if you haven't yet installed your kW...it's a good modification/upgrade to add an upper perch in the front that has a bearing, or to add a bearing to the spring perch seat...you can see an example in my suspension madness thread. Not quite sure why kW wouldn't offer this stock...but unfortunately they don't. Spring windup will affect your steering and handling...the bearing eliminates that.
