    He just told you what for. " for greasable poly bushings front & rear... ". Torque values for grade 8 1/2 " bolts are 100 ft. lbs. and the front spring bolt should be a 9/16 " bolt which would be 115 ft. lbs.

    yea front & rear...

    I'm thinking those spec's a too high for the poly. those are the torque spec's in the books, but it really squished the sides of the poly pretty good so I'm thinking the poly torque spec's are lower.

    OK, so I didn't get it the first time I read it. I was going to head out to the garage and look it up in my ORD info, but wasn't sure what I was looking for. So I posted looking for some clarity. sheesh...
