Steering Stabilizer Torque
I just changed my Steering Stabilizer with a Rancho unit. My torque specs say the bolt and nut need to be torqued to 50 ft. lb. While torquing the nut I noticed the bushing started to come out so I stopped. Now the bolt and nut are pretty darn tight but still not at 50 ft. lbs. My question is do they really need to be that tight, it seems too tight and will put to much pressure on the bushings?
The bushing should have a metal sleeve inside it to bottom out on the bolt so it can't deflect the bushing too far. If yours does not have the sleeve then you need to get one because it will never be correct and the bolt will loosen over time.
