I am going to change my shock spring with a HyperPro spring so I'll have to fiddle with the famous upper shock bolt. I understand the torque value of the bolt is critical. Since I'm living in Turkey in a small town that's a problem for me because I can't find a torque wrench that's calibrated. (I don't want to buy one unless I really have to). There are decent torque wrenches I can borrow but none of them are calibrated.

I'm thinking if there's any room for over-torquing the upper bolt just to be on the safe side without damaging where the bolt goes in and if so how much is it?

I hope the knowledgeable folks in the forum will answer and better yet advise how much % more should I torque it.
