Ohhh...they need a torque wrench. A torque wrench is your friend. When you always torque you can always stand over your work 100%.


Ok, unless I am reading this incorrectly or just not understanding it...If that shop was the cause of the crunching, then yes it was nice of them to replace the bars no questions asked. But, I really think that they should have replaced the bar absolutely free! I mean come on! They did it! They should pay!


Always remember the Pisqually torque spec. I quote directly from the manual on:
page 314 paragraph 4 section b

“Turn until the bolt breaks, then back-off a quarter turn.”
