Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum. My teenage daughter's drive a 2016 Renegade 2WD. One of them hit a concrete curb last week making a left turn (driver's side) and bent up the rear driver's side control arms and bolts. I picked up new rear control arms (both forward and rearward) at our local stealership on Saturday and replaced the driver's side rear lower control arms as well as the lower control arm bolts next to the hub. I would like to torque all 4 bolts properly (2 for each control arm). Does anyone know the recommended torque specs for the rear lower control arms?

Thanks so much!

Thank you abmecee1!!!!! That chart was perfect!!!! Interestingly, when I removed the rear control arm bolts, they didn't feel like they were torqued as strong as the numbers in the chart indicate?

Just in case anyone else needs this information, here it is:

Front Lower Control Arm to Crossmember Bolt: 92 ft-lb
Front Lower Control Arm to Knuckle Bolt: 74 ft-lb + 90 degrees
Hub Nut: 52 ft-lb + 47 degrees
Hub and Bearing to Knuckle: 77 ft-lb
Rear Lower Control Arm to Crossmember Bolt: 92 ft-lb
Rear Lower Control Arm to Knuckle Bolt: 74 ft-lb + 90 degrees

I am going to replace the front lower control arm and ball joint next. It looks very difficult to get to the front bolt to crossmember on the front lower control arm. I'll let everyone know how it goes.
