Torque settings?

Is there a list for W210 torque for most common items? I know wheel lugs are 80 ft lbs.

I am getting ready to replace a front left lower control arm and ball joint. Any help would be appreciated....

Should be a $100 or less,...

Valvoline Synpower 0W-40

Has anyone used this in their AMG? I know Mobile 1 is MB's favorite flavor. PI sheet states it meets MB -229.5 & 229.3. I have always used Valvoline in all my other vehicles.
