Default Lower strut boltl torque?

Is it just me or is VADIS not the greatest tool?

I clicked on every "tightening torque" link and looked through the lists multiple times, without finding what I'm looking for. It's the torque for the two big bolts that attach the "spring strut" (meaning the strut and spring assembly) to the aluminum stub axle/wheel spindle/ brake assembly.

Any help?

Bought it on line some years ago.

Searched and searched, but couldn't find the torque for probably the two most critical fasteners in the whole front suspension. But the little bolt that holds the ABS sensor to the strut is called-out specifically. Wha??

Answering my own question for the benefit of someone who may be looking for it here in the future. According to the alignment shop, it's 45 lb-ft, PLUS 90 degrees or tightening rotation. An odd spec for sure, but not really unexpected with these cars.
