U-Bolt Torque

What kind of torque specs are we looking at for the U-bolts on the rear axle?

Haha our computer at work sometimes says like 85-115 ft/lbs for lug nuts. In that case we just go for 115.


Thanks guys. I think my impact got them tighter then that but I will check them.

I have never torqued ubolts..

I put my impact on them and keep going around until none of them move anymore.
