    Ok spent about the last hour searching and reading. Few questions about the steps. Final torque settings order?

    Lower
    Sleeve
    upper

    Or,

    Sleeve
    upper
    lower

    I think the 1st one sounds right Lower Sleeve then Upper. Torque is
    Lower 75
    Sleeve 50
    Upper 100

    Those sound correct? Just trying to compile all the search results. Ya get a lot of different values and steps in all the diff articles. Maybe I'll write another one as I do this along with a lockout installation article because I think that question shows up more than any question besides what tires fit /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Thanks

    According to my manual you are right on with the lower, sleeve, upper and the torque settings, Just did mine two weeks ago and Thats what I followed. But a spec sheet and right up is a good idea. lol
