I just installed my sway bar on the front, following directions in the Tech section. But what is the torque for the 8 bolts attaching the K-Member to the frame?
It is a 92 with the 5.0 I cleaned the old locktite off of threads. My book doesn't tell torque and when I called Ford place I was told 60 ft lbs. They were busy and I think they were thinking of the trans mount.
So, can someone tell me?

Thanks.

DON'T REUSE THE OLD K-MEMBER BOLTS! They are torque to yield and if you try to put them back in they will cross-thread with the nuts that are in the frame. Then you are looking at removing the motor and cutting open the frame to replace the nuts. When I tried to buy new ones from the local stealership I was told that they are no longer available. Go to your local hardware store and buy eight grade 8 bolts to put back in there with Lock-Tite. I don't recall what the threads are but the dealership was able to tell me, so maybe you can call one or contact Dan.
