2017 2.5i
I’m replacing the lower control arms and had to remove This part
I can’t find what the bolts that hold it on should be torqued to.
Thanks for any help!

Just make them tight. Torquing is highly inaccurate for predicting actual clamping load. If you want check them in a week. I personally wouldn't bother.

I agree, the only reason to torque these two bolts is to make sure they don't fall out. If you can't find mfr torque values, you can find a general purpose torque value based on the size of the bolt and the thread pitch.

This is from a manual I have, looks like your part.
Open the pdf file, #2 is a flange bolt and the torque reference is T6.
