I called Spydertrax when I got mine. They told me 80 to 90 ft-lb. They also mentioned that I was the only person to call and ask than question. WTF? I was wondering if he was screwing with me.

You can always give them a call also.

Yep 80-90. I did mine right down the middle and did 85 to 87.

Just be sure to remove any little c-clips from the outside of your rear drum brakes if you have them. If you don't, the spacers won't fit flush and may cause vibrations or more serious problems.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

He was probably wondering because the spacers come with an instruction sheet that clearly had the torque spec called out.

Mine didn't come with any instruction sheet, so there.
