As far as the stabalizer bushings, tighten them until the rubber bushings are the same size in diameter as the washers they sit in. For the tie rods, it shows 39 ft. Lbs. There is no listing for the pitman arm, but I believe it is locked and prevented from moving with a cotter pin. Make it tight and make sure to replace the cotter pin so it can't move.

Glad to help. As far as the pitman, mitchel doesn't provide torque specs for it. As long as you tighten it and replace the cotter pin so it can't come off, you should be fine.
