Body mount torque specs?

Searched. I have 04 FSM & can't find it in there (body mount might be called something else?)

What is the torque specifications for the stock body mounts?

I've read 35 ft. lbs, till the rubber bulges, till you grunt and then a little more, goodntight, etc.

Wow. That seems like a lot. I tried torquing the body sides to 35 and it REALLY made the bottom rubber piece bulge. I torqued all of them to 20 so lets see if I fall off my chassis on my way to work tomorrow

Are the specs you quoted in the FSM somewhere?

Wouldn't that high of a torque squish the rubber bottoms so much that the metal part under the bolt head would contact the metal sleeve? Why not just use washers instead of that metal thing.

Something tells me it should be enough for the body to float a little for when the chassis flexes...

They are called "Main Floor hold down bolts" in the FSM and the torque spec is under the frame/bumper section not the body section

had the same prob. couldnt find the specs in the FSM. after looking at this thread i found the specs on a table in the front of the frame/bumper section as stated. however the specs for mine are listed as follows:

main floor hold down bolts-50 ft/lb (the six larger bolts)
radiator to frame mounting bolt-45 ft/lb (the centered one in front)
rear floor to frame mounting bolts-35 ft/lb (the remaining four bolts in rear)

although the FSM doesnt have a diagram listing which bolts are which i'm sure the info in ( )'s is correct.
