Question Torque Spec ?

Does anyone know what the torque specification is for a 2003 H6 Wagon front strut top bolts (the three small ones)?

I don't have the exact figure, but I know this- it's not very much, or, less than you would think.

If you need to get something done right now, you could probably use the torque specs for any other Subaru; it won't be too far off.

I've heard multiple stories of folks over-tightening those nuts, when putting strut tower braces on, and shearing the studs right off...

Yeah, I was thinking it was somewhere in the 10-14 ft lbs. range. Not much. But I'm not sure.

For other vehicles it is 14, would it be different?
