Default Swaybar link torque specs

As I've stated in Front end link bushing replacement? AND Sway bars worth it?

I have a problem with my swaybar linkage breaking. This is the 4th time (passenger side 1 and drivers side 3). I have zero confidence in the dealership that has done the repairs. Couple that with the last time was a fight to get them to back their work I'm going to do this myself and hope for better results.

I have a '06 base model PT with the stock front swaybar. My 2 questions are:

1) Does anybody else have this problem?

2) Can a mechanic tell me what the torque specs are for the linkage?

I called Napa and the parts should only cost about $35-37 for the repair kit and bushings but I have to measure the swaybar size, he said it'll either be a 24mm or 26mm.

In the repair manual there's nothing for "swaybar" but they do have the Torque for the "Stabilizer Bar".

Clamp Bolts = 21 Ft-lbs, 28 Nm
Link Nuts = 21 Ft-lbs, 28 Nm
