So I looked around for these for awhile, and then slapped my forehead and remembered - I've got the FSM!

I opened it up and it looks like the torque specs are as follows:

Front Brakes - Lower "Torque Member Bolt" is 185 lbs
Rear Brakes - Both Torque Member Bolts says 102.5

Is that for real!?! I mean it would make sense, since it was a bitch getting those bolts to back out. But I only torqued them back down to like 50 lbs. I don't even think I have a torque wrench that goes up to 185lbs.

Can anyone confirm I'm reading the FSM right?

EDIT: Confirmed, I'm reading it wrong. The 185 is NEWTON METERS, the actual specs are:

Front Brakes - Lower "Torque Member Bolt" is 136 ft-lbs
Rear Brakes - Both Torque Member Bolts says 76 ft-lbs

It is a large chunk of metal holding against a large chunk of metal. Crank it until it doesnt want to crank anymore. If you are bouncing on it with all your weight and a long breaker bar....... it might be a bit overkill, but otherwise when it stops turning you're good lol
