I hope everyone is sitting down.

I'm going outside now to change the pads and warped rotors on the emergency Sable.

I know, I know.

You probably shouldn't stand until the lightheadedness passes.

I hope the chainsaw will start.

Meanwhile, I expect the torque specs for the wheels will be in the owner's manual but if anyone has them handy, I'd appreciate them posted here. I couldn't find them on a quick search.

I believe the correct torque setting is 2 x pie x torque divided by 33,000 but I may be wrong.

Ordinarily, I'd agree however, I just paid $250 to have the front wheel cut off the 210 due to overtorqued bolts on an alloy wheel.

Uh, you do know that wheel bolts should never be installed with an impact wrench--right? I've been doing it so long, that I just use the torque-by-feel method.

‘Emergency Sable’ implies a back up vehicle not often used. Given its duties as a motorcycle chase vehicle and now attention to warped rotors it seems to be seeing a lot of action.
