eLearn wrong? (Bolt sizes)

Just checking some torque figures before I bolt my rear subframe and ARB back on. eLearn quotes the bolts as being M8 but they are all M6. Is eLearn wrong and if so do I ignore the torque figure?

I wouldn't normally be too concerned, it's just that the whole reason for the subframe being off the car is because one of the ARB bush clamp bolts snapped off the other day. It would certainly make sense to have a more substantial bolt in there it seems, something like an M8 perhaps! But the subframe has M6 holes for M6 bolts so god knows...

eLearn is wrong they are m6 as you said , as for the torque just use as they list i dont torque things like that as tight is good enough torque for me which is tighten until force is felt then turn another 15 deg

But you could always drill and re-tap a bigger thread to m8 it wont hurt but m10 would be too big

Thanks for that. Ok, I'll just crack on and use some stainless M6 bolts.
