Can someone post the torque specs for a 3.5L, 2006?

I'm specifically looking for the torque specifications for the following:

Exhaust stuff:
both the front and rear, 3-bolt, flanges where the exhaust manifolds bolt to the catalytic converters in addition to the two other, 2-bolt, flanges upstream of the resonator.

Engine stuff:
Alternator to block mounting bracket
Belt tensioner
AC Compressor to block
Oil filter housing adapter to block

Suspension stuff:
Front sway bar to frame bushings
Outer sway bar end links


Thanks

Thanks for posting this.
And I reading the suspension specifications correctly?

Suspension stuff:
Front sway bar to frame bushings 18 lb/ft
Outer sway bar end links: 48 lb/ft

Exhaust stuff:
  • Exhaust manifold heat shield 89 lb/in
  • both the front and rear, 3-bolt, flanges where the exhaust manifolds bolt to the catalytic converters: 23 lb/ft
  • the two other, 2-bolt, flanges upstream of the resonator 23 lb/ft

Engine stuff:
Alternator to block mounting bracket
Belt tensioner 37 lb/ft
AC Compressor to block 37 lb/ft
Oil filter housing adapter to block: 18 lb/ft

No worries. The only one I have had to do is "Front sway bar to frame bushings 18 lb/ft" and for this one I was replacing the bushings under the U shaped brackets.

Unfortunately, the threads in the frame stripped for the mount on the front, passenger-side, bushing. I don't think I can fit a drill and bit in there to drill and use a thread repair kit. I'm unsure how to fix the issue

Can you please confirm that these are the torque specs for the front suspension?
The specs I posted covered a number of areas. A number are for the front suspension. Clearly anything to do with steering and drive shaft would be related to the front. The rear frame to body bolts not so much. Hope this helps.
