Body bolt torque

What's the torque on the body bolts? I guess a huge shop manual would have it but my Haynes manual doesn't list it. Also is there a web site full of torque information.

I need to know too, I just did a 1in bodylift today(waiting for an axle shaft to arrive)
I also need to know how to remove the broken bolt/ nut from the drivers rear corner(easy outs didn't work)

I just helped with a body lift yesterday. We just tightened the bolts. Just get'm tight. I don't think it's actually that crucial.

On the broken bolt, what's always worked best for us, is to place a nut over the bolt and weld the center of the nut to the bolt.

The problem is that the bolt broke off flush with the nut.

If there's any meat above the nut, maybe you could get some vice grips on it. Or, cut it out and weld a new nut in there I suppose.

Hammer & chisel to try to catch an edge of the chisel on the broken part and have it turn out......

Otherwise, drill and retap, and cuss a lot!
