I know many people tighten nuts and bolts just by feel and experience. But I was curious and thought I'd put together a collection of torque specs from the '07 FJ Cruiser Repair Manual and keep it in the garage and in the truck for quick reference. I've found that I tend to over-tighten things doing it just by feel. If this list is missing any other commonly used specs, please let me know.

Your chart is the bomb. Thank you Doug. I'm out now double checking all my rear end components. Should be a firmer seat of the pants feeling since I backed everything off to 60lbs. Don't do it. To sloppy and clunky for day to day.
