Hi. Anybody know what the torque specification is for the rear of a 68 Mustang with drum brakes (5 lug). Also, I changed the front to disc. Using a 71 Mustang spindle with global west suspension conversion. What is the torque specs for the front?

The wheels are aftermarket cast aluminum centers...does this change the torque? (new wheels are aluminum as apposed to the original steel wheels)

thanks, Jaime

I torque all my aluminum wheels to 35 ft. lbs. on the recommendation of the performance tire/wheel shop where I get most of my tire/wheel stuff done.
