    I believe he's from Chile looking at his past posts in the diesel section. Sounds like google translate gone wrong.

    I find broccolini is a good upgrade from asparagus.
    More torques, less wee.

    Not saying this is the same thing as knuckle studs, but when my shop used ARP head and main bearing studs. The ARP instructions said to first chase the block threads with a tap to clean all the threads, flush the holes with brake cleaner, then blow dry with compressed air. Next it said to place a few drops of red lock tight on the studs threads, then torque those studs into the block using ONLY 15 foot pounds of torque. Per the ARP instructions, all the stretch and load is applied to the stud once it's nut is torqued to spec.

    FINALLY!!!!!!!!

    I am VINDICATED!!!

    I torqued the knuckle studs into the knuckle ball at 40 LB-FT (

    Per @Golgo13 , install them using 36 LB-FT (53.57 kg/m) for the STUD (asparagus)

    Clean the interior of the ball with BrakeKleen (or equal)
    Clean the threads of each STUD HOLE with BrakeKleen.
    Place 1-2 drops of RED Locktite on each stud.
    Thread each stud in as far as possible by hand.
    Torque each stud to 36 LB-FT (53.57 kg/m) (I used the double-nut method so I did not shear off the tip of the stud.)
    Make sure all parts to be installed are CLEAN and oil-free.
    Install the lower steering arm, making sure to align the bearings properly.
    Install the cone washers and nuts.
    Install the nuts and torque to 71 LB-FT (105.66 kg/m) (You CAN place 2 drops of Blue Locktite on each stud threads before installing the nut if you want. Some say NOt to.)
    Using a SOFT-FACE hammer, strike the bottom of the steering arm as you tighten the studs in order to make sure the arm is completely seated.

    I used RED Locktite and torque the studs to set them and keep them in place so they do NOT rotate while installing the nuts, causing a loss in friction. This is MY opinion and others will (and have) disagree with me on this. My studs have not loosened in 45K miles I feel safe while driving in the mall parking lots.

    Leonardo, I'd amend @BILT4ME 's instructions to torque the nuts to 91ft-lbs instead of 71ft-lbs.

    hope this helps

    That would be 135.43 kg/m in your terms.
