Tranny Crossmember Bolts

The long bolts with the rubber bushings inbetween the tranny and the cross member.......they keep coming loose, how tight should they be?

My book says Mount to Crossmember..........60-80Ft-lbs
Mount to Transmission...................................45-60Ft-lbs
Lower absorber assemblies (early 4WD)........30-50Ft-lbs

Re: Tranny Crossmember Bolts

That's a good idea, using another nut. 60 to 80 ft pounds seems like an awful lot you know, especially when there are those 2" or so rubber grommets inbetween there!

I have used clear silicone as a form of locktight. It keeps the bolts from vibrating loose but is easy to remove them when the time comes. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
