    Anbody know how much the torque rating is for the Ring bolts to the carrier? (this is for a Dana 60 front). Putting the ARB in this weekend and that would help ;) Oh, what about torque specs for the Bearing caps too? I know to use LocTite Red. I'm guessing like 100lbs for the bearing caps and maybe 80 or so for the ring bolts???

    Go to www.ring-pinion.com (Randy's Ring and Pinion). They have an on-line tech library and you can download a .pdf file with installation instructions and all of the specs you need for all of the common axles.

    ring gear to carrier 110 foot pounds and the caps are 80 foot pounds. Good luck with the installation.
