I have the trailing arm bracket ready to go back on. The rest or the rear suspension will come off and back on tonight if everything goes right (it normally doesn’t).
So I have all my torque specs but one has me perplexed.. the Trailing arm I have seen the following specs for.
Trailing arm bracket to body – 40 ft lbs (the 3 bolts that hold the bracket to the body)
Trailing arm to bracket bolt – 77 ft lbs (this seems reasonable)
Trailing arm to knuckle bolt – 177 ft lbs and I have seen – 52 ft lbs + 65 degrees) and also seen (66 ft lbs + 75 degrees)
Which is it.
I also am taking off the rear suspension support frame those bolts are 81 ft lbs (4 bolts) rear spindles (control arms) are 103 at the support frame and 110 at the knuckle
strut is 33 at the top (connecting to the body) and 89 at the knuckle.
Do all of these seem legit?
I am really trying to figure out the trailing arm to knuckle spec.. that seems really high..
Thanks for any help!
