Bolt torque important when fitting rear sets?

Well I now have the new rear sets sitting in the garage ready to be fitted. Is this something straight forward I should do myself or should I take it to the dealer? The instructions state I should tighten the bolts to manufacturer torque settings and apply locktite. My issues though are a) I don't own a torque wrench and b) I've no idea what the manufacturer specs would be. Can I just tighten them normally or is the torque level important?

a. Can you borrow one quickly, or do just as I know some blokes do (And I did not tell you this), undo the bolts taking note of the paint marks on the bolts, re-tighten to the same point with new Loctite on the bolts.
b. Really, have a look at the "indicated all over the forum website", and download the workshop manual, it might save your arse one day.

Cheers mate. Will do. I'll also give myself an upper cut for being a lazy sod! And buy a torque wrench while I'm at it.

EDIT - Dumb question for the day. When the workshop manual says to tighten the bolts to 24 28 Nm does that mean tighten them to somewhere between 24 and 28 Nm? Or something else entirely?

Nothing dumb about asking for clarification...It's a range, so lower value 24 Nm and higher 28 Nm. Within this range is safe.

Bear in mind though that these values are with reference to a dry thread or a lubed thread as per manual as this affects the bolt stretch...
