The car in question is a '97 Civic. The bolt of concern connects the damper fork to the lower control arm trough a bushing. It's encircled in red in the following picture.
I torqued the bolt down to 64 Nm by torqueing the bolt while holding the nut with a socket wrench. This was done with the suspension at ride height, the lower control arm jacked up so it's carrying the weight of the vehicle.
I noticed that I can still turn the bolt+nut (without holding the nut) with relatively little effort. Is this normal? I'm worried that if the pinching force is so small that I can still turn the bolt+nut that the bushing itself isn't pinched properly as well.
