Ask The Expert- Control Arm Bolt Torque Specs


Jeep Newb
I just installed upper rear control arms on my 2005 TJ. I used the supplied hardware and, since there were no specs in the instructions, i torqued them to the factory specs of 55 lb/ft. I’m just wanting to know whether i did the right thing or not. I’ve read in some other forums that people have stripped threads of the supplied hardware when torquing them to the factory specs. Please let me know if I’m good to go or not. Thank you.
