    The spec in haynes for the upper rear shock bolts is 140. I went to check them and they looked tiny. They were 11/16 and not the original bolts. Do I have the wrong size bolts in there or is the haynes wrong? 140 seems like a lot for a bolt of that size. Wanted to check before I broke the bolt and busted my knuckles. thanks--B

    snug and a 1/4 turn is all you need with a big washer and a lock washer.
    no need to whit knuckle it. if ya ever have to remove it on the road or trail you might not have a breaker bar handy
