Hello All,
I have a 2018 Dodge Charger RT and looking to change my pads and rotors both front and rear
I’m looking for torque setting for the caliber bolts that go into the slide pins as well as setting for the caliber bracket bolts.
when I did a search online i saw this The front brake caliper bracket should be tightened to 70 ft/lbs and the rear should tightened 85 ft/lbs. The caliper bolts have a torque spec of 44 ft/lbs and 23 ft/lbs in the rear.
Now I’ve seen Setting in a Haynes manual below highlighted in red that agrees with the 44 & 23 setting but not the 70 & 85
Which one is correct????

One foot-pound (ft-lb) of torque is equivalent to 12 inch-pounds (in-lbs) of torque. Torque values below approximately 15 ft-lbs are expressed in inch-pounds, because most foot-pound torque wrenches are not accurate at these smaller values.
