    Any body know the torque for each body mount on my 75' K5. I would assume they would be the same for 73-77 K5's, since they are the same body style. I checked my Chiltons and my Haynes, but no luck. I'm changing my body mounts this weekend and would like to know. Thanks

    Never seen a torque setting either, I looked. I put in poly one and just tightned them real tight, make sure you check the bolts though, they have a bad habbit of being half rusted through and breaking. You might spray them with some P.B. Blaster or liquid wrench and let them soak till the weekend.

    Agree on the rust-loosner!! spray it every morning and night,every day until the weekend I was in a hurry as always when I start something, and I tell you, my arms and knees were sore for 2 weeks after. I also banged my knuckles upp real bad a couple of times.. ##$$£@@$ !!! And the undercoating disolved and got in my eyes along with the rust-flakes.
    It is alot easyer when the bolts come loose easyly though.....
