    Does anyone know the torque specification for the 6 small nuts that hold on the brake caliper bracket and the spindle on a D60 front? I've already run a search and clicked through the online maintenance manual but haven't found it. Maybe I'm just missing it /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif Thanks for the help.

    any time man. might want to get the chiltons book for the truck that your axle came out of. lots of TQ's you will need in there.
    i have 4 for my truck. one is redundant, but i got it when i got my 14 bolt not thinking about getting one for the front axle. i guess i could only have 2. the truck one for 87 to 88 and the blazer one. but oh well.

    Can you buy a Chilton's manual at a place like Napa or Autozone?
    Also, will it show me how I am supposed to bend the lockwasher over the adjusting nut and the outter nut? I can't figure out how I'm supposed to do that and I figure a picture would help. Thanks again
