Re: Wheel Alignment Specs JGC with Quadralift

Wheel nut torque based on owners manual is 175N.M, much higher than that in PDF. I doubt the PDF wheel alignment spec is the same as that for 2014 model. Anyone happened to have the spec for 2014 by any chance?

Are you sure about the torque? Does it nominate whether this is dry or lubricated? Here it states 136Nm Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2011-2015 Grand Cherokee wheels and tires . My 2012 manuals states 150Nm. I can understand it being so much higher if it is dry.

Both my14 and 15 say 175nm. It doesn't say dry or lubricated. But proper way is to apply wheel nut grease.

Interesting! I wonder what changed their minds and is it retrospective?

I always put grease on wheel nut threads and shoulder but I can't see the point in using fancy anti-seize greases. My concern is that most people, mechanics and wheel guys don't so manufacturers up the torque setting to compensate. It is said that half the torque on a dry wheel nut goes into friction leaving only half to go into tension in the bolt. With lubrication, much more goes into the bolt giving greater grip against the hub but also risking over tensioning the bolt. I'll need to give this some thought.

Don't know about retro. But can't get wrong if follow owners manual.

Hey fnkychkn I remember you from another forum that I frequented when I owned my 2005 Dodge Magnum RT (as "Revdoctor"). I recently (7/28/15) bought a 2015 JGC Limited with "Off-road adventure II" and "Uconnect 8.4 AN/AM/FM/SXM/HD/BT/NAV" (build date 10/29/14) that was sitting on the dealer's lot for 9 months. I'm having the sad to say normal problems of dealer wheel alignment, so I'm going to a local independent shop that only does alignments & has a good reputation. Do you have access to the 2015 alignment specs?? Have they changed from the above (assumed) specs for 2011 - 2013 ?? Many thanks in advance and nice to see a familiar "face" in the crowd.

And the paragraph right below that, mine also says 110 ft-lbs

Had mine aligned today at an independent shop because it was eating the outside edges off, plus the steering wheel wasn't centered. Damn thing was pigeon toed all this time from the factory. It was really out of the spec for toe in.
