Just hand tighten it. They don't need to be in there too much.

i just don't want to break something like other people. Before i installed the strut bar, whenever i unbolt the stock bolts, they where pretty tight. So that is what i did with my strut bar, i tighten real tight, but i am afraid of breaking something.

I have a torque wrench and if i can do it right then it will be ok, but that is why i am asking for the torque spec.
