45 ft.-lbs., best practice is to use new nuts and bolts.

Grinding a corner off some grade 8 bolts is a lot better then trying to find them at the dealer. Stu's write-up has the exact info on the bolts.

Thanks everyone- new nuts, blue loctite. Old bolts though cleaned up

Replacing the rear bearings was a very easy job... I like working on Wranglers
