Rear upper arm torque..

I've spent the day today changing my rear upper arms . I've found the torque settings, but my question is how do I do it, I can't even get a socket on some of them, let alone a torque wrench.

Or do I just put spanner on and do as tight as possible Whistle

Many thanks Bow down

I see you used the "cut it off" approach. Can you use a universal joint to get to it. Maybe Mikey or Flack will know.

Just tighten them up, with body on your access is limited, just make sure you set them at the correct height before tightening the bolt's. These are not critical.

Thanks for that.. I did think the correct torque must be a job you were only able to do with the body off.

I did find it awkward even to get a spanner on some of the bolts when jacked up to the correct height, let alone a socket and torque wrench.
