    Pivot Bolt Torque Settings?

    I have an 07 Stumpy Elite that creaks like crazy. I've determined that it is coming from the Shock link frame and seatstay pivots. I plan to take it apart, put some grease on it, and reassemble but I'm not certain as to what the torque settings for the pivot bolt are supposed to be. I downloaded the manual from Spec but is for the S-Works model. They don't have a separate manual on their site for the M5 frame. Does anyone know if the torque settings are the same?

    My 08 developed a creak as well and I narrowed it down to the bushings on the shock. Loosened it, put a little lube on, let it sit, tightened it, problem solved. No where near as bad as my Trek Fuel. I can't imagine that you'd have to take the linkage completely apart. But I could be wrong.
