    I'm sure that the instructions (lost) said, but how tight (torque) should the bolts on these be and is there a problem if they are too tight?

    I didn't have any directions with mine, in both of the sets (front and rear) that i have recieved in the last month. So i just put them at about 75Ft/Lbs.

    I doubt that it will hurt them but if it does than i have a reason to take it apart again. I hate working on my truck more than i drive it:D

    I am pretty sure it is 40-45lbs. That is what mine are at.

    Thanks, I have them at 45 based on the advice above. They work great by the way.
