    Does anyone know the torque spec for the body mount bolts on a 1980 K5? I've done a search on this forum and found quite a few threads on this topic, but I couldn't find the torque spec. BTW.. this job does take it out of you. PITA.

    65-70 ft lbs. I used poly bushings and the front ones moved a little so I torqued them to about 90 ft pounds..

    I remember the instructions from Energy Suspension for the body mounts listed the bolts to be torqued to 85 ft. lbs., but that was the regular cab truck that I was working on at that time. (a '79 K20)
