Where can we get torque specs for suspension parts, namely bolts for reassembling a spring swap. How about alignment specs? Thanks in advance.

Great question, I hope someone can provide such Fiat 500 specs. But it might be hard to get this type of information since the Fiat 500 is so new but with a forum as big as this I bet there has to be some qualified mechanic or better yet a mechanic that works for Fiat.

I found a repair manual from a British site(costs about 6 pounds) but don't know if it would really apply.

I reverse engineered the specs when I swapped my springs. I checked the torque of each nut and bolt before I removed them by progressively tightening up torque wrench till the nuts or bolts just gave a bit and recorded the rating. Close enough.

Dealer can tell you the alignment specs.

I was thinking the same thing. I'm sure I could squeeze all the info out of my dealer.

Hi, as regards the optional OEM 17" wheels on the USA version Abarth, I'd like to know the wheel width. Is it 17" X 7" or is it 17" X 7.5" ?? I can't find this info anywhere.

Thanks, Hank

Good advice. You can also mark any bolts that you are planning to take off and put back on. Grease pencil works.
