Default Torque specs for suspension

I've got an '07 Impreza Wagon I'll be installing springs on soon. I'm hoping to get the torque values for the various nuts/bolts. Any help is appreciated.

Well, here you go:
This is for the 2004 WRX/STi, so check and see if they're the same for your year and model.

Ric - That is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a bunch!

Anyone know the limits of the stock front camber adjusting bolts? I purchased one pair of aftermarket bolts from SPC. My thought is to install them on the rear. Another idea I had, if it's even possible, is to move the factory fronts to the rear and install the aftermarket ones on the front. Any opinions?

Leave the factory ones in the front. You can install the aftermarket ones in the lower hole in the front in addition to the factory ones.

Damn, super correction up front. Should I not worry about the rear?

Well... at the risk of opening a HUGE can o' worms... more grip up front is better than less grip behind. And the wagons tend to achieve somewhat lower max negative camber up front than the sedans.

Of course it depends what your goals are (e.g. for autox you might want bolts in the rear to reduce the camber right down and make it super loose).

And I may be misreading your whole purpose - bolts to 'correct' the camber back to stock aren't really necessary after a spring install - lowering springs will make the camber more negative than stock (more so in front than in the rear) which is good. I'm talking about 'correcting' beyond the stock settings.

When I say correction I'm referring to returning back to stock. This car is many for daily driving with trips on the weekends for snowboarding. I've got a Civic I use for autox that I'll take out to local events. For any events that require some travel I'll take the wagon just to give it a try. So it may see 3 events a year but not to be competitive, just for fun you know. I'll keep the stock bolts up front and install the SPC bolts on the rear. Thanks for all of your help. I'm currently working on the front and working my way to the back soon.

Just got the alignment done and the camber adjustments I guessed at we're right on, all that needed to be adjusted was toe.
