MM Torque Specs Snapping Bolts!?
I'm in the process of installing a MM Panhard Bar on my 89' LX. I drilled the holes, cut the frame bracket things to length, ect. I went to torque the G8 3/8" bolts to what MM said (47lb ft), and snapped the first one at 30lb ft. What do you guys torque these bolts (mounting the chassis mount to the frame) to? 30 lb ft was enough to snap the bolt.
For Sale: 89' Hatch: Built for AutoX. Put 311/324 to the ground.
For Fun: 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Built motor + 22lbs on a Gt35r = 450awhp
