E450 Torque Specs - Sway Bars

Does anybody have the torque specs for a newer E450 w/ regards to the front and rear sway bars?

Hellwig has simple bolt on instructions but the sheets refer to 'Ford Specs' as far as torquing the bolts back down. Not very helpful - reaching out directly to Hellwig resulted in response advising I contact Ford. I'm sure Ford isn't going to touch a aftermarket part install w/ a 10' pole ....

So has anybody replaced the front and rear bars w/ a Hellwig product?

Roadmaster has torque specs on their product, but I can't be positive the bolts are the same. The Roadmaster also costs significantly more then Hellwig and requires I drill for the rear sway hangar bar install. I don't want to drill anything.

Anybody have the torque specs?

They said refer to ford specs, just ask ford what the stock sway bar bolts are torqued to you don't need to tell them you are installing an aftermarket and torque Hellwig to that spec

The perfect torque for any bolt- tighten it till it breaks and back up half a turn

Their post was clearly sarcastic and was posted over 3 months ago. Please relax, your post didn't contribute anything of value either.

S1njin, I put the BlueOx rear sway and trac bar on. It came with a torque sheet.
