End link bracket.

Hi Guys.. I'm just getting the chance to do my rear struts because of the horrible winter here in New York.... I'm at a small snag... I started pulling thing apart but as you know rust and salt screws up everything... I'm planning to go the route of unbolting the bracket that bolts into the rear knuckle to get the strut to slide out due to the endlinks not budging ( Future replacement).

Does anyone know the torque specs for the bolt on that end link bracket? It's nowhere in the manual.. Their instruction is to pull the end links which is next to impossible atm.

Thanks

Just changed my struts out recently so I think I know what you are talking about...are you referring to the "rear link stabilizer bracket" (items 9 & 10 in the image below with bolt 34)? I torqued mine to 43 ft-lbs to match the other bolt (the strut mounting bolt) holding that plate in place to equalize clamping forces; for the stabilizer end link nut: the spec is 29 ft. lbs.

Yea number 34... I saw a thread just now but on the 3rd gen forums where that guy torque to 33.

Question in that.. Did you pull your end links or even the sway bar support brackets? Or was it just #34 on yours to get space to get enough space for the bottom of the shock to come out?

Reason I ask is on Youtube I've only seen #34 removed on the 03-07 Accords

I removed bolt listed as 34 to loosen up the bracket. Once that happened the bottom of the strut pops out of the socket I the back of the knuckle.
