It's worth adding that the Haynes manual for the pre-facelift to model year 1999 is largely applicable to later cars including facelift models. Especially for the information you want for the diff and suspension as things mechanical didn't change. That's probably why Haynes didn't publish an update. A good condition manual can be had from Amazon or ebay for around 5.

Also the bolts may require further 2 stage angle tightening once torqued.

Which bits of the rear suspension? Subframe to differential damping bush is 125Nm or 92lb/ft.

Bang em in, and whack em up. Job done. It's a suspension bolt, as long as it's tight it won't move. :y

That. They're big bolts, you've got to try really hard to damage them.


Driveshaft bolts and the hub nuts are the only ones to worry about torque numbers.

When I last did rear wheel bearing, hub nut was whacked up with windy gun, then big 1/2 socket bar, seems to have stayed tight, and the driveshaft bolts are only m8, so with a 3/8 ratchet you shouldn't break em.

The only time I've used a torque wrench on M6(or smaller bolts) is for Omega cam covers. I hardly ever use one on M8 bolts unless their failure worries me: spinning flanges(CV joints, propshafts) are one of those cases. Bigger bolts like suspension mounts, wishbones etc; I've never had a failure not using a TW, so I don't worry about them. Split bearing caps(big end/main bearing/cam caps), head bolts and sealed bearings: every time.
