Rear control arm bolt torque setting ?
 
Just put Superpro poly bushes in the rear control arms.
Having trouble finding the correct torque setting for doing up the mounting bolts again :confused:

Anyone know ?

Ft/Lbs or Nm I dont mind :D

Thanks

Here you go, even with both torque values:D. 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.

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 :confused:

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 :thumbsup:

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)
