Torque Specs

I've searched and searched and can't find what I'm looking for. I want to do the CHF on my Windsport but need to find the torque specs for the bolts that connect the sway bar to the connecting links. Any suggestions where to find these?

With that in mind, what's the best source for torque specs for other suspension and chassis components? Are they set by Ford for each GVWR chassis or are they based on the specific bolt type used?

I really only have one question but figured if I'm starting a new thread I may as well make it a good future reference.

Torque specs are usually a matter of the grade, size, and type of cap the bolt has.
Google search grade 5, grade 8, and socket heads, then determine the diameter and find them on the chart.

Agree wuth 10sc

As a general rule torque matched the bolt size and grade. But I've have the same bolt size have a different torque per manufacturer specs
