I'm getting ready to do a brake job on my Saab 9-3. I looked up the torque value for the front carrier bolts and they're 155 ft lbs!

I've never seen a value so high.

The wheel nuts on semis are 450-500 ft lbs. 450 meaning minimum and 500 meaning maximum.

The idler bearing gear bolt for. DT466 is 476 ft lbs.

Lug nut torque an caliper bracket bolts are high on pickups never mind semi’s.

You don’t work on enough trucks

Bigger bolts, bigger torque. If the bolt is a big'n, I'm not surprised.

Seems about normal. Carriers are usually in the 120-150 ft/lbs range. Just get them "good-n-tite".

At least four big grunts for old timers.

Seriously, when I did the brakes/rotors on my Cutlass, the bolts were 153 ft lbs.

At my lab, we used units of "fat girls"
So your torque is one fat girl on a foot long breaker bar

Okay. I guess I'm behind. I'm used to carrier bolts being around 100 ft lb or less.

You’re not. Most Honda/Toyota cars are still 80 for the bracket bolts, though some are 100.
