Hi all,

Just wanting to know what the torque setting should be on the;
lower ball joint

tie rod end
wheel hub nut

Any help would be appreciated.

1966 impala, R32 GTR
lower ball joint 80-95
pivot bolt (to x-member) 95-110
tie rod end 72-90

wheel hub nut. finger tight, then rotate back and forth. then tighten to 20nm, loosen the nut 2 turns then retighten to 12nm.

no idea where your gonna find a torque wrench that goes as low as 12nm though. mine starts at 35nm i just go by feel. last time i did it i fitted the wheel and guessed how tight it was when the wheel stopped moving in and out. if that makes sense.
