KW V3 install/ Torque specs

I finally installed my new suspension on the weekend. I ran into a problem snapping one of the studs off the stut mount spring perch



Does anyone know if I can replace the stud or will I have to get a whole new hat?

Also does anyone know the torque specs for the 3 nuts?

The vorschalg ones are around 16-18 ft lbs, but I'm not sure about stock. I would just pair these up with vorschalg camber plates for an additional cost, but I don't think the studs can be replaced.

agree.. sounds like a GREAT opportunity to just go with camber plates and do it right the first time..

thanks. you are correct the studs are actually like a press pin/stud. I am not able to find anything like it. The dealer told me they only sell the unit as whole. I guess a camber plate will probably be my best option
