Top & Bottom Rear shock mounting bolts torque?


I googled, but I couldn't find it.

Seems to me top bolt is 100nm?

Is bottom bolt the same?

Found out using a bunch of loctite on these is a very bad idea! *That* was a pain! What should I do re-installing them? A *drop* of low-strength?

I used Locktite every time, and then got sick of it when the bolt bent and it was painful to remove.

I started using anti seize with the Locktite.. Now I only use anti seize.

Hasn't come loose yet. Torque wise it'd be around 100Nm. Or tighten...grunt...creak...grunt...yeah that'll do.
