Default Strut bolts torque spec's?

Would someone be kind enough to tell me the correct torque for the 3 top bolts for the struts. I haven't had a chance to get a service manual for my PT. Thanks for your help.

I was lucky enough to win the BTG Strut Bar. I had to go to PTY to get info on how to install it. (Haven't rec'd yet, but wanted to get info first). Anyway according to PTY they ARE to be torqued to 25 ft/lbs. My $.02 .
