Suspension torque settings needed.


I just finished installing the new lowered suspension, but now that I think about it, I tightened everything with the car in the air, and not to any specific torque.

Should I loosen the bolts and tighten them again with the car on the ground ?

I can find these torque settings in eLearn:

Front lower wishbone to damper fork: 108 - 132 Nm
Rear arms to the hub: 111 - 135 Nm
Does it mean the setting can be between the two settings ?

I can not find the torque setting for the upper wishbone connecting to the top of the damper mount, can anybody help with this ?

Edit: David C told me I had the wrong units in this post, I have cleared that up now.

This is all the correct torque settings in kg as that´s what my torque wrench will do.

Front lower wishbone to damper fork: 10.3 - 13.7 Kg
Front upper wishbone to damper mount: 4.28 - 5.3 Kg
Rear arms to the hub + rear tie rod: 11 - 13.45 Kg
