Body Lift Problem!!!!

We got it up and all the cab bolts torqued down and done everything back on and thought we were done. well when i went down the driveway hit a few bumps and the cab was squeakin badly. I flexed it out and noticed the cab was shifting pretty badly. So we parked it and rechecked all the cab bolts and one of the bushings is stripped out. We torqued the other rear cab bolt to the 55 ft. lbs called for in the instructions. I plan on gettin a new lower bushing and bolt tomorrow and retorque everything. we also noticed the front of the cab shiftin a little as well. Just wondering if anyone has had this problem or has any suggestions to keep it from shiftin or squeaking any?

Never had any problems....I used an impact. I think you just didn't have the bolts tight enough.
