I just installed a 14 blt into my 88 Blazer, what is the torque for the rear u-bolts? Thanks Ed
IIRC they are 130 ft lbs.
when i bought ubolts a week ago the guy said that for 5/8" bolts torque is about 140 ft lbs... so its somewhere in that neighborhood
I don't know why they spec out such a high torque for them. Once you get over about 100ft*lb the u-bolt plates will start to bend. I even bent the 1/2" thick cast plate for my front D60
Just tighten it till you see something start to bend and then check it regulary
