I probably should have considered this BEFORE pulling out the front engine bolt on my new 2010 Z, but I'm curious if anyone can tell me the ACTUAL torque spec for those front bolts?

The sliders I'm installing recommend 35ft/lb which seems VERY low compared to what I was expecting.

Can anyone give a noob a little help :p;)

32ft/lb on them, Excellent to know, I was thinking that seemed awful low.

Just a sanity check, these are the bolts I'm talking about:

looks like from the pic L 40 means length 40mm and L 65 means 65 mm. ithink thoes are the bolts you wiil be using. they appear to be the ones i used , i removed them witha long 3/8 drive ratchet, installed sliders with the the same ratchet. weren't very hard to remove. used the slap the ratchet with my hand. torque method. can see the eyebrows raising as i type this, i check them regularly. hope this helps.:dontknow::dontknow::screwy::screwy:
