Take a look at our torque specifications to ensure proper installation.
To properly toque the top nut you will first want to determine the size of the nut. M stands for metric and the numbers following are the inner diameter of the nut in Millimeters.
|Size of Nut||Torque|
Measuring the diameter of your top nut or of the threaded rod will allow you to match up the size with the required torque spec. Example, 12mm diameter means it is an M12 nut and should be torqued to 34 ft/lbs.
NOTE: If you are re-using OEM factory hardware make sure it is in good condition and use the vehicle manufacturer’s torque specifications on OEM nuts and bolts
Do not use an impact tool to loosen or tighten fasteners due to possible damage to the product.
All rubber-mounted strut/damper attachments must not be fully tightened until after the suspension system is loaded (wheels on the ground). Other mounting fasteners (ex: brackets) must be securely tightened before load is placed on the suspension system.
