Does anyone know the tork value for fastening the stock STB brackets to the shock tower (the three nuts)...and also the value for the nut/bolt that hooks up the bar w/the brackets...I took them off today and painted them red (I was not broken in I couldn't do any mods to it yet...and there's still snow out...)when I put the bracket back on...I started out with 25 ft/lb of torque then went up to 40 and my wrench didn't click, it just kept going and going, I am afraid that I did something wrong and stupid to the tower so please enlighten me to make me feel better...

Also, is there any special consideration or setup involved when I install a STB?...cuz when I put it back on today...the car didnt feel as solid as it was...maybe I am just shitting w/myself...(I also read from somewhere that you should weight your front end down when you bolt down an STB, has anyone heard of anything of that sort?)
