What should we torque the castle nuts down to on our TRE's... like some ES2010L's and stuff?
I've always been taught to torque them "til I turn blue"
Yep as tight as you can get them.
so for the castle nut on tre's theres no torque spec? that'd odd. b/c on the ball joints they say 70ft/lb and that's the same thing almost... taper seat design.
I torque mine down to 80 ft lbs, then tighten until you can get the cotter pin through. NEVER loosen to get the cotter pin through.
Shane74- I like the way you think. I'll go with that... 70-80 ft/lbs and tighten to put cotter pin in.
