Found this.. thought I'd post it for future reference for anyone else:

From Maximum Motorsports Instructions:

11. Install the endlink bushings and thread on the
endlink nuts. Do not tighten them yet. To avoid
pre-loading your swaybar, the endlinks should be
tightened with the car on the ground.
12. Safely lower the car to the ground.
13. Tighten the endlink nuts. Do not overtighten
them. They only need to be snug. You should be
able to rotate the endlink bushings with your
fingers, but still feel some friction from the contact
between the washers and the endlink bushings.
If you cannot rotate the bushing, the nut is
too tight. Adjusting the tightness of the endlinks
with the car on the ground will ensure that there
is no pre-load on your swaybar.

Yeah, it ends up not being all that tight. You tighten until the rubber bushing bulges the correct ammount. Then just check it again in 1000 miles.

I believe Maximum Motorsports tells you 25 lb/ft but I believe it also says that, the number is only for if you don't know how to judge the tightness by the bushing bulging.

lol. basically, if your a total moron go spend 80$ on a micro torque wrench so you can tighten your end links. Priceless...
