Rear Suspension Torque?
« on: June 16, 2016, 03:23:56 PM »
Recently removed and cleaned both rear suspensions shocks. PS - Navel Jelly is incredible!!

Any ideas on what Torque should be used when placing the shocks back on? Top and lower bolts? Thanks guys!

2.3-3.7 kg-m. That generally falls into the category of "tigthen 'em real good" for most folks. If you need to convert the to lbs.-ft consult an online converter. If you need more you should get a manual.

Thanks so much! Actually had trouble locating the rear suspension specs. in the manual so this is a big help. The shocks are buffed and shiny now... So the last thing I need is one popping off while rolling down road haha!
