    I've been searching for the proper spec for the cap bolts of a dana 44. The number is get most often is 80 ft-lbs but I've seen numbers like 60 ft-lbs and 30 ft-lbs. Several "how-to" guides have suggested red loctite be used for the cap bolts.

    I have ordered a Haynes manual but don't have it yet. What is the right torque spec? Should red loctite be used? Thanks.
