Just torque it to 140 or whatever a normal torque wrench will do, then put a breaker bar on and go "a little more!"

It probably won't shear off later!

^ I did that but to 160 lb foot, under HARD braking, the control arm shifts forward and goes CLUNK.

i think i used a large breaker to tighten it down back when darryl mount/balanced my wheels. but you can see where the mount would slide forward and back under the bolt head.

i think because the psrs is a spherical bearing, it doesnt deflect like the rubber oem bushing would.

i dunno, i will probably load it up with locktite blue as well.
