Torque specs for high-steer arms???

Anyone know the torque spec for tightening the nuts on high-steer arms? These arms use the GM studs w/conical washers.

Thanks,

Re: Torque specs for high-steer arms???

I saw it on pirate a couple of weeks ago.

maybe a search over there would find it, or you can just ask and let 12 folks call you a dummy for not searching, and the 13th gives you the info.

small price to pay!

Re: Torque specs for high-steer arms???

I tried the Pirate "search". One post said 78ft-lbs. I just talked with Parts Mike he says 85ft-lbs. Well, they are his arms so I will go with 85ft-lbs.

Thanks,

If you still want confirmation, I'll look in my dodge book when I get home. They use almost the same steering system as the GM except for one has the drag link above the steering arm and the other is below.

Re: Torque specs for high-steer arms???

Parts mike told me 90 ft/lbs with his arms. Not that 5 ft/lbs is a lot, but I wonder why the difference?
