I'll be lowering my rig in a few days and I'm wondering if anyone has torque values for reassembly. I've seen in some posts a value here or there but is there a more complete list? I'll be installing lowering springs, upper control arms and rear shocks.

Do you have the front brake caliper bolt torques? The two 21mm bolts?

Jim it's coming along great until now. Rear is lowered and qa1's installed. Front passenger I'm started on and stuck at the moment.

Here is a copy of another post i made:
I'm installing my lowering kit on my 07. I can't figure out how to get the single bolt on the lower shock/strut assembly out. It connects to the lower control arm. The backside appears to have the nut welded on 24mm and the bolt head is a 21mm. The bolt head appears to have a locking collar around it with a tab covering on side. Any help on how this is removed?

Once I can figure this bolt out I will be good. I'm excited to get it done and take a test drive.

Let me know when you get back in town would like to check it out.

Jim
Will do Jim. I should be traveling back on Monday. Maybe Monday we can meet up? I'm thinking I'll get into town in the late afternoon.
