so i am lifting jeep next tuesday and want to know as much torque specs as i can, such as leaf spring bolts, shocks, trac bar, etc and any others you can think of
I'm not sure about brake lines. I dunno how you measure torque on a line that requires a open end wrench.thanks mudd, what about rear brake line bolts, or do i just tighten all the way down? how much for lug nutlike 115? just curious, also what about rear shocks are they the same as the ones up above a few posts?
Thanks for this info. I learned something.For hydraulic lines, torque specs are typically listed in "flats past finger tight."
Meaning - you turn the nut/fitting until it's "finger tight" (no wrench - just your fingers,) and then you turn it the specified number of 1/6-turns past that using a wrench.
As I recall (I'd have to look) the general rules are:
to 1/4" - 1FPFT (one-sixth turn)
5/16"-3/8" - 2FPFT (one-third turn)
7/16"-1/2" - 3FPFT (one-half turn)
9/16"-1" - 4FPFT (two-thirds turn)
1-1/8"+ - 6FPFT (one full turn)
This may then be gradually adjusted upwards if leaks are noted after final assembly (visually verify presence/absence of leaks before returning vehicle/equipment to service. Apply pressure to verify.)
Anytime.Thanks for this info. I learned something.
