Thumbs up Torque Specs needed!!

Hails, if anyone knows or have the list of torque specs from a PT Cruiser 2003, please let me know. I need to change ball joints, both lower control arm bushings, inner & outer tie rods etc. The whole area "make over". I need to make sure I'm doing it correctly, not only mount them and keep walking.

Thanks for your time

Hmmm I checked the shop manual and the information is on page 29. It helps when you learn to find the right key words.
