According to the genuine Ford manual, the rear shockie nuts should be torque to 35nm, and unless my torque wrench is playing up (which I hope not as it's a decent Stanley made one) as I was winding them I hadn't even reached 35nm and the bushes were completely squished and deformed, so should I just tighten them to a point that leaves them still in a similar shape to what they should be in, or do the actual 35nm?
