Default Torque setting for rear shocks???

Installed the Steeda Sport springs and Koni's in the rear of the Stang today, but have no idea how tight I should make the top shock nuts, in the trunk of the car???

Are you waiting on the Sport struts too? I have the rear shocks and the springs, but I was waiting for the struts to come to do the change.

PS. I only did the rears to see how they compare with the stock fronts. They are a little more stiff, but keeps the wheels planted during heavy acceleration over bumpy surfaces. Will tackle the fronts this weekend....I have about three fingers space above the rear wheel after the drop. I didn't measure the height before, so can't tell you how much
