torque on shackles

I just bought a daystar 1.25" shackele lift for the front, and a Conferr 1" for te rear. Can someone tell me how much torque i should use on these. I've heard 100, but i want to make sure. Thanks

The manufacturers specs are always around 100ftlbs. But really, if you want them to work their best, around 30lbs is what you want. Use nylock nuts so they don't come off and it's one of those things you always want to keep an eye on. But if you tighten them to 100lbs they'll be too tight and stiffen your ride and reduce your flex. I just tighten mine up till they're snug. I'd guess it's around 30lbs, but it ain't that crucial. Just get them snug.
