Question Sportsman 500 rear stabilizer link bushings

Anyone know the torque spec for the rear stabilizer link bushing bolts? Not noted in the manual. Maybe just tighten to visual compression shape? Thanks! 2001 & 2002 models if wondering.

Torque based on bolt size - 8 mm bolt about 20 to 24 ft lbs - 10 mm about 30 ft lbs - can be higher for fine thread and lower on coarse threaded fasteners

Thanks bp405. I was a little skeptical that latebird's reply offered a general rule-of-thumb, but likely didn't take into account this unique situation with those rubber bushings. Just 10 lb-ft of torque seemed to deform them too much. I really appreciate your advise!
