I use 80 ft lbs. And I use a RED magic marker to write on the inside of the
little plastic hubcaps "80 ft lbs. NO AIR TOOLS. Use anti-seize" That way I
always know the torque without having to look it up. I have no intention of
letting any "monkey-lads" (tm Phil Payne) touch my car, but you never know
what situation you may find yourself in. (Yes, we can replace the tire
free, but we have to put the wheel on . . . )

Still have the pair of rear discs for 1989 100 w/ABS. Just been turned,
four hole type, $25 buys the pair, plus freight from Daytona Beach, and
still have an ABS computer for sale: $100? (from 89 100)
