    I have a '98 GM with the 14bolt ff with the plate on the bottom of the tubes.
    I want to switch it to the plate on the top of the tube. Is there a kit available?
    Thanks

    150 - 160 Lb/Ft....

    Pretty sure that's factory spec.

    Don't have the manual here with me, but I used to set mine at about 120-130. 150-160 doesn't sound far off, but is pretty tight. I'd start at 120 and see if they loosen up.
