What are the torque specs for the lower two bolts for each shock absorber to the spring perch? I looked in the shop manual and I see the follow areas:

"Shock Absorber Upper Bracket to Body Nut" == 8-16 ft. lbs.
"Shock Absorber to Upper Mounting Bracket Stud Nut" == 10-15 ft. lbs.
"Shock Absorber Assembly to Spring Seat" == 12-17 ft. lbs.

Am I reading it correctly, I'm guessing that 12-17 ft. lbs. is what I'm shooting for on the bottom two retaining lock nuts.

Please confirm as I would like to wrap this up today.
