Re: torque spec?

I just threw away my manual. It depends on weither or not you are using new bearings. New bearing will have a higher torque. My 14 bolt SF with new bearings required 80 inch pounds if I remember correctly. Do a google search for Sierra Axle and gear, use key words such as differential repair and differential installation.
