Need Superlift help please!
I got everything removed from my truck last night, now I'm beginning to install the Superlift kit.
I'm running into a few problems. First off there is a major discrepancy between Superlift's torque specs and those I found in my '07 Ranger Ford Service Manual.
For instance the two horizontal differential support bolts that go thru the new brackets:
Superlift says 111-148 ft lbs for the upper bolts and 135-156 ft lbs for the lowers. My Ford manual says when reinstalling these bolts, torque them to only 49!
I was just going by the Superlift numbers, while tightening the upper bolts I was thinking, "These are WAY too tight". So I stopped at 100lbs. The lower ones, on the other hand, the passenger side didn't even make it to 100lbs before snapping the end off.
What did you all torque yours to?!
