U-bolts, 75 ft-lbs, retorque ever 50 miles for the first 250, then after another 250 miles.

Shackles, 10 to 15 ft-lbs.

Springs??? Wouldn't this be considered a shackle?

Skid plate, 1 grunt, just before it breaks is fine.

my RE lift said:
spring eye bolts- 1/2" = 65-80 lbs
9/16" = 75-90 lbs
u-bolts = 65-80 lbs

chiltons says:
spring eye shackle to bolt = 95 lbs
spring eye to frame bracket bolt = 105 lbs
torque the rear crossmember-to-side sill bolts to 30 lbs
pitman arm shaft nut = 185 lbs
