Are the nuts holding the OEM brace actually there for anything else other than the brace?

I'm curious because when I removed it to fit the Buddyclub, I just put the nuts back just in case

Cheers, also make me feel a bit better as one snapped off instead of coming off properly

May I ask what's the torque spec for those 4 x bolt that secure the OEM bar to the chassis? I only find the top nut torque spec 33 ft/lbs but cannot find the info for the bolts.
I need to remove it to do some work, and then put the OEM strut brace back later.

Sorry to revive an old thread.

Anyone actually replaced one of these studs and knows the size?

I can only find out a little bit when googling any someone mentioned using "grade 12.9 steel bolt" thats all

Thanks
