Newbie FJ owner..... Waiting on my FSM from Helms but could wait.. :) So... Can someone confirm the torque specs for differentials? See a lot of general specs in the forum but nothing specific.

If you are talking about the entire 3rd member to the axle housing, then 34 ft/lbs.

Guy's remember to check FAQ's. Members have spent much time compiling answers for many of our questions.
Also, you can keep moving along on your projects if your not waiting for a reply for answer you can find quickly.:)

Good point. I had not tried the FAQ. I referred to the '75 and '80 FSMs and misread the torque specs in the back and ended up stripping several bolts on the diff. If I had confirmed that spec before doing it - I'd have saved a bunch of time and frustration.
