spring bolt torque

I'm added a leaf to my spring pack and got to thinking after I took it apart, how tight do I need to tighten the center bolt of the spring now that I have it put back together with the new leaf?

I just made them tight with two wrenches. Don't know if there's a real value or not though.

Yea, that's what I figured but if I didn't ask I would have been wrong! Thanks.

I think my frame mounts are at 65 ft/lbs and my shakle bolts are at 45 but as long as there tight its not really like there going anywhere. I like mine a little loose for a smoother ride.

Continue to tighten until you can't move the wrench anymore... or until the nut breaks off, then you know you've gone to far.



J/K of course. moderately snug/tight should be fine.
