2010-2011 Lug nut torque spec
 
The scoob is a noob here. And I searched for this info this morning. I dug in my owners manual, but the info was not to be found. I was doing a tire rotation and could not find the torque spec on the 2010+ Legacy. I called a local tire shop and they said 80, but I vaguely remembered it being more than that. On the older models it was 72? I believe. Anyway I guessed 90 ft/lbs. Finally had time to look at the searchable electronic owners manual on the subaru site (I forgot about this until after I was finished with the rotation) and did a search for torque. Low and behold under section 9-8 (flat tires) I find the spec

89 ft/lbs

I'm posting this because I'm a forgetful old fart and by the next time the rotation is due, I will have forgotten. :hide: Besides it might help the next guy looking for the info.

Oh and one more piece of good news. Looks like we've knocked the front end out of alignment as I'm getting wear on the inner side of the right front. Off to the alignment shop we go.

anyone know what our lug nut size is? I plan on getting some aftermarket ones when I buy my wheels.

13FLGT: You might considering purchasing from TireRack. They throw in a set of nice lugs and centering rings, gratis.
Cheers.

12mm x 1.25mm lugs.

Been torquing 76-78 with anti seeze. Retorque after a few hundred miles

I feel your pain.
 
I find it helpful to write certain facts about the car, drain plug size, how many qts of oil, lug size & torque, various filter specs etc, on the blank page in the owners manual in really big print.

I was looking for this information today. Sadly, it is missing from the 2013 manual.

So, I had them torqued to 80

GTEASER 05-27-2014 07:29 PM

America's Tire says the torque spec for our cars is 75. I just do them between 80 to 85 and figure I'm good.

That is exactly what they told me when I called. The body shop was asking.

From the 2013 legacy owners manual, 89 ft-lbs. I feel like this information is usually included with the instructions on how to change or rotate a tire, but it looks like subaru moved it into the specifications section.

fredrik94087 05-27-2014 08:55 PM

Thanks...I guess they did move it. I went to same section as OP stated and didn't see it there.
