Hi just bought oem front/rear sway bar bushings for my 2007 RRS HSE 4.4 (regular suspension)
Two years ago bought the cheapest bushings on ebay (front & rear) and handling improved but after few months was back to feel very loose

Lesson learned, this time want to install the oem with correct torque and everything

Can somebody tell me torque specs please?
Didnt find it in forum or google

Thank you

Is it possible to over tighten them? I replaced the front without torquing but couple of days ago I replaced the rear ones and tightened them pretty good and now I hear cracking sound coming from them

Let them settle for a few days/weeks. My front made noise for a while then stopped. Some on this forum have lubricated bushings to stop the popping/creaking. (I used OEM bushings)

Makes sense, I heard not to lubricate them so that’s what I was sticking to and yeah I used the Atlantic British ones which so far had no issues with any other of their products. Thanks for the reply, I’ll let them be for a while and see if it goes away

Replaced both front and rear, and big big improvement in bumpy roads
The after market bushings after only 2 years were all cracked and deformed
By the way torqued them to Front 115 Nm (85 lb.ft), Rear 62 Nm (46 lb.ft)
Car isn't perfect yet cause rear shocks are done

Now just need to replace rear shock absorbers with new arnotts, everything else is new, (moog sway links front/rear, new arnotts shocks in front, and the oem sway bushings front/rear i just installed)
