    Default angle tightening

    With most of the suspension bolts needing torqueing and angle tightening, can it be done without the proper tool. I'm thinking of marking the angle on a socket and then turning it the required amount. Would this work, or is there more to it.

    Basically you just need to turn the socket handle the amount of degrees it mentions. The tool just makes like easy. There dirt cheap mate.
