Sorry if this has been posted already. I did a search and didnt find anything. I installed the Rough Country lift a few weeks ago and its time to retighten everything. I have the instuctions but I am a bit confused on the torque specs. Could someone simplify it for me? My farther helped the first time and he is not around right now. I need to know the torque for the Upper ball joint,lower strut bolt,Sway Bar, and Tie rod. Thanks for any help. D

I'm doing this from memory, so somebody please chime in if I'm wrong.

Upper ball joint - 45 ft/lbs
Lower strut bolt - 125 ft/lbs (this is the bolt that spans the bottom of the fork through the lower A-arm)
Link to swaybar - 75 ft/lbs
Tie Rod - I don't know, I never had mine disconnected. Judging by the size of the bolt, probably at least 85 ft/lbs.

Anyone?

125ft/lbs [removed]! I dont think we did that! My torque wrench only goes to 75ft/lbs. WTH did my Dad do. I got to go to sears and get a new torque wrench.

Install the tie rod on the knuckle using the

factory hardware and tighten (70).
