The dealer. They are supposed to be replace every time.

Tighten diagonally to 7.5 ft-lb. This makes sure it's flat. Then tighten to 52 ft-lb diagonally. Although they don't say to put threadlocker I put medium strength threadlocker as cheap insurance. As you tighten them, make sure the torque wrench is perpendicular against the bolt or else it can throw off the torque reading. A common problem is the bolts backing out.
