Hyundai service manual for strut assembly reverse installation states: "Tighten with specifed torque at curb position of vehicle"
What is curb position? Is this the same as curb weight?
I was looking into changing out the struts on a 2015 Hyundai Accent and noticed this caution note at the bottom of the procedure.
If this is referring to curb weight, does this mean tighten the bolts, then put the weight of the vehicle on the axle, and then torque to specification? And is this for all bolts (axle mount, and upper mount in engine bay)?
If so, what's the best way to accomplish this without the wheel on?
Also, what is the reason for this? Just to better understand.
Here is a link to the procedure I'm using: manual
