Default Looking for bolt torque specs...and vendor Kudo

06 997.1 S Looking for the torque specs for:

1. Front outer thrust arm bolt (at the hub)
2. Bolts locking down front sway bar bushings. 4 of them.

And huge thank you to Chip Minich at PowerGrid. Great guy to talk to, very knowledgeable. Although a GMG GT3 sway-bar will fit different drop links are needed.
In case anyone goes this route their 1210M-35-P model accommodates this. No affiliation just a happy customer.

By "Thrust arm" are you referring to the control arm that runs at 90 degrees or the diagonal control arm that runs at 45 degrees?

48 ft/lbs for the 4 M10x60 Sway bar mount bolts

The diagonal "control arm" some refer to as thrust bar as where it mounts into the control arm is often called the thrust bushing. In any case. The arm is #3 in the diagram and it's the bolt at the control arm bolt #11 and nut #12 that I am looking to torque.

Got the new drop links installed. Must say they are well build with a fantastic fit. Nice to know they won't be clicking or making noise down the road.
Thanks again for the torque specs.
