A few quick questions

first question: i'm in the midst of installing a new clutch on my 5th gen and i'm worried that i might have over-torqued the pressure plate bolts, which I know would be pretty bad. 19ft lbs is the torque spec for the bolts, but i just bought a new torque wrench and i'm not 100% sure how noticeable the release click will be. my question is does it take alot to torque down the bolts to 19ft lbs? I'm sure i'm being over-cautious but like i said i dont want to warp my clutch disk. just kinda sketched out because i've been tightening the PP bolts 2 turns each in a star pattern for awhile now, i just don't want to over-tighten them without realizing it.

second question is do i need to grease new (front lower) ball joints before i put them in? I was expecting the new ones to have a grease hole on them, but they don't. should i just pull back the rubber boot and throw some grease in there before putting them in?
