    Default torque wrench settings help

    hi there, im wanting to change the front springs on my car and found these

    Piston rod nut 100Nm
    Upper mounting nuts (Torx) 20Nm then 60 degrees
    Strut to steering knuckle 50Nm then 85 Nm then 90 degrees
    ARB drop link 65Nm
    Wheel nuts 110Nm

    i have brought a torque wrench and get the 110nm but im unsure what the degrees bit means i.e 20nm then 60 degrees, can anyone explain please?

    from what i can see on google i think i tighten to the 20nm and then tighten the wrench up and imagine a circle or clock face and tighten an extra 60 degress so from about 12 o clock postion to 2 o clock extra torque.

    Thats about it. One complete turn is 360 degrees. So its 20nm and then 60 degrees for a complete turn.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
