    Default Rear leaf spring bolt torque

    Does anyone know the rear leaf spring bushing bolt torque spec?

    I want to change my bushings out and would like the spec. I searched the net and it might be 62 N·m 46 lb ft, but it's not 100 percent clear.

    Thanks,

    Are you talking about the center mounting points to the subframe????

    Hey Paul,

    I'm talking about the four round puck bushings, two on each end of the leaf spring. Each side has a bolt that goes thru the bushings.

    HI Todd,

    They do not have a torque specification. They have a DISTANCE specification.

    We are instructed to measure #1 before removal and then reinstall them at the same distance. This is dependent on the actual ride height measurements taken and that they are in specification.

    Let me know if you have anything else that you need.

    Paul
