Suspension (shocks & springs), by torque settings I mean the torque numbers for doing bolts up tight. :)

Most workshop manuals will have a torque spec for practically every bolt. Not really needed as most bolts are tensioned by 'feel'. Sounds a bit ghetto, but it works.

If I told you I was a compulsive liar, would you believe me?

Yeah, I was worried after reading SUBARU's suspension DIY that breaking bolts could occur, and was hoping a torque wrench - with manufacturers torque specs - would avoid such situations.

If you're talking about the nuts on the top of the strut mount, I don't thing there were any particular specs on how tight they needed to be. Just be careful as the bolts are quite soft and easy to twist off.

If you're talking about the bolts on the lower end of the struts, just tighten the crap out of them. ;)

Hahaha.

Haha! certainly tighted the top mounts too tight, initially. I like learning the hard way sometimes.

Manual says 14.5 ft-lb (Pg. FS-17)

I think the manual says 129 ft-lb - that's sounds tight!!! Also recommends to use NEW self locking nut.

Haha! certainly tighted the top mounts too tight, initially. I like learning the hard way sometimes.

Hmm, so if I get a torque wrench I'm gonna have to make sure it does 14 to 129 ft-lb.... Sounds like a 1/2" drive is in order.

Not sure if you will find a 1/2 with that range. More likely to be around 30-150ft/lb (40-200Nm).
I think you would be better off getting a 18" (450mm) 1/2 Breaker Bar, far far cheaper. You will need one to undo the lower (chapman) strut bolts anyway as it is a pain with a standard ratchet or ring spanner. You could also use it to do them up again. As Chris suggested, just tighten the crap out of them. You wont strip or break them.

I assume you use these things because you could kill ratchets given the torque involved? Torque wrench's are not designed to get things off? And or hurt yourself trying to use spanners?

Yup. Handle is twice as long as a ratchet, so twice the twisting force for the same effort. Plus no gears to overload. Some torque wrenches will be destroyed if used in reverse.
