    Hello All,

    I'm finally putting the rig back together after about 8 weeks of downtime. I got started, then needed a part, it snowed, it was cold .....

    Anyway, I've put in new bushings and the ORD 1" body lift.

    Was looking for the torque specs for the body mount bolts.

    Thanks for any help,

    #1 is 55 ft. lb.
    #2 is 45
    #3 is 35
    #4 is 35

    #1 is at the very front and they go back to the rear where the one closest to the rear is #4.

    this info came out of a 1982 chevy light duty truck 10-30 series shop manual

    Thanks Phil from KC.

    I guess the 75lbs that I guessed at was a little much ;-(

    Whoops, I better go loosen mine. They were loose, so I broke out the impact, put it on 4, and hit them all.
    They looked a little squished come to think of it...
