Newbie w/ Suspension Question

Hello all! Been lurking around the site for the past couple of months while researching, and eventually buying our first motorhome, a 1998 Pace Arrow 36. Excited to get our family out and enjoy, but working on getting it roadworthy - and safe - first.

I've got all my parts to replace the sway bar and end link bushings front and rear. Found while bleeding the brakes out with DOT4 the rear sway bar bushing were completely disintegrated, which appears very common (and some great writeups here!).

Does anyone have torque specs for the suspension components so I can get it all reassembled properly? I read through the posts on replacing the bushings and must have missed the torque info.

Glad to be aboard!
