You have the numbers correct.Good afternoon, I assume the torque spec's listed above apply to the 2000 Limited model as well? If I am reading it correctly the rear shock top nut is 15 ft/lbs and the lower bolt is 64 ft/lbs. On the front shock the lower mounting bolt is 100 ft/lbs, the 3 upper mounting nuts are 47 ft/lbs and the center nut is 18 ft/lbs?
I am looking at doing this job myself and finding this was a miracle!!
Please let me know if my torque figures are correct and thank you!!
To make it easier, just unbolt the 4 bolts for the lower ball joint. This will make it easier for you to remove the lower bolt and reinstall it the same way you removed and make this whole process a one-man job. Some have had issues inserting the lower bolt the other way and some have not.I have read that some people have a hard time aligning the bottom strut bolt during re-installation. With a helper couldn't one person push up and compress the shock to align it with the bottom mount while the other person is ready to insert the bolt? I just tried one of my new Bilstein 4600's they are stiff but not too stiff to compress by hand.
I know I have to install the lower spring seat onto the shock properly but does it matter which direction it is rotated??
thank you for your help!!!
