Yes i know ive mouthed half u off now in my anger but i have a serious question for once.. we got my friends 3 inch body lift into his truck today and was wondering how we should tighten the lag bolts, just use an impact gun or torque it to a spec?
Did ya buy a kit? If so doesnt it say?
tighten them so there tight and check again in a couple days ...[wako]

always tighten and recheck after some driving wether it is a kit you are putting on or just replacing stock suspension components most suspension parts you can safely use the German Torque guage "Goottentoit"[cheers]

This should be a guide line ofr ya M-6 6-9 ft lbs (1/4 inch)
M-8 10-14 '' '' (3/8inch)
M-10 28-40 " " (5/16 inch)
M-12 50-71 " " (1/2 inch)
M-14 80-140 Ft Lbs (9/16inch)
These are som base guide lines off the top of my melon also use a good thread locker and use a torq wrench.

kk, ya we fnished the body lift today... looks pretty good.. had troubles with the steering extension but got it knocked out.. only problem now is extending the shifters.. cuz they hit the floor and wont go full throw

Take the boot off and cut some of the floor out, the boot should cover the little bit you have to cut out.....hopefully. [cheers]

When I tightened up my ubolt nuts I did it until I thought it was tight....Later I went and got a torque wrench and tightened em to spec - Needless to say it was a LOT more than what I had em at.
Short story shorter - GET A TORQUE WRENCH.
