    Alrighty i need to get the torque specs for a 10bolt front and rear. Im thinking of dumping some 4.10s in it so it will tow the LUV better. So what are the torques ill need to know? (bering caps pinion ect.) Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure they don't give specs in that booklet. That booklet is more of a how to install your gears and read the gear pattern type thing. It also warns you of different types of things to avoid doing.
