Re: Rear control arm bolt torque setting ?

Here you go, even with both torque values. You should torque the suspension components with the weight of the jeep on the wheels.
Did you change those bushings by yourself and where did you buy them? Still looking for those bushings for the track bar.

Re: Rear control arm bolt torque setting ?

Thanks for the reply. But reading that chart Im not sure what one to use, is it the "Suspension arm Bracket nut" Im looking for

Bought the poly bushes from a place called jeeps4play in England, but the Superpro polybushes are made in Australia. The guy seeling them says they will help reduce the "butt wiggle" of the WJ. Ive spoken with a couple of UK drivers who fitted them and recommened them also.
Fitted by me, you have to "burn out" the old rubber bush and use the shell again to inset the new bush (check youtube for a video)

Test drive soon and let you know how it goes

Re: Rear control arm bolt torque setting ?

Did you only change the lower control arm bushings? If yes, you will need the following torques:
Suspension Arms Lower Axle Bracket Nut (so the nut where the lower control arm connects to the axle)
Suspension Arms Lower Frame Bracket Nut (so the nut where the lower control arm connects to the frame)
