    This is a nice list of torque specs that I found here. I have one printed out in my tool kit to reference.

    These numbers were pulled manually from the 2005 Nissan Xterra Service Manual (revision Feb. 2006). There could be errors in translation, typos, mis-reading of the manual, brain farts, etc. Please double checked these torque specs with Nissan. I take no responsibility if you use these specs and something falls off.

    Torque specs like how much torque is correct for each fastener? How do you even measure that?

    If not trolling, use a torque wrench.
    Also, feel free to post up in the introduction thread!
