    For the front shackles it is something like 65 ft/lbs. I think. When I installed mine, I didn't have the specs, and I didn't have access to CK5, so I just tightened those bad boys down real tight. When I get home, I am going to loosen them and retorque them, becuase I am probably loosing flex, or at least causing undue friction.

    The front shackles tighten to 50 ft lb. all the rest can go to 75 or 80.
