Hello, I'm Danny.

I've attached pictures below of the information you've requested. The top strut mounts require 20 ft lbs (#1 and 2) of torque and the lower strut mount bolts ( #2) require 133 ft lbs of torque. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Are those bottom ones the ones on the knuckle that you need to tightened after changing the CV axle?
