Strut tower bolt torque

Anyone know what the front strut tower bolt torque is? Talking about the 3 bolts per side for the front struts.

Removing my strut brace in the next few days and the new one won’t be here for a few days, so I need to torque them down without it.

I used this before taking mine all apart...https://youtu.be/GJg-rTYwkGk

Keep in mind - Finger tighten the strut mounts until the car is back on the ground and then torque them down.

I don’t intend on lifting the car to do it. Just pulling the old brace off and putting the stock bolts in while it’s on the ground.

Sorry about that. I just assumed struts were coming out. It is 20 foot pounds for the nuts. They are part of the rubber strut mount.

I noticed that with my Petty's bar. 35 ft/lb destroyed one of the nuts they sent. I went about 25 ft/lb when I replaced the nuts.
