Exclamation E53 Front and rear suspension torque specs

I was trying to find all torque specs for the rear suspension in one quick overview but did not find it. So I created one myself and included the front suspension too.

All torque specs come from newtis.info.

First number is in Ft lbs / second number is Nm.

All bushings with rubber in them should be torqued under load with the wheels on the ground.



After you're done torque the wheel bolts to 103ft lbs / 140Nm.
