Anybody know offhand what the body mount torque should be approximately the BJ74 (no can find in FSM). The M10 (1.25 thread) Grade 8.8 bolts are 38 ft-lbs in the FSM, but no reference to those used for the rubber body mounts. It seems 38 ft-lbs is really squashing the rubber mounts OR are the bushings inside supposed to take up the torque. Thanks for any help.

Not sure on the torque # but they are tightened until the body mount rubbers start to compress and then a jamb nut is used to keep them tight. You can use medium lock tite as well for back up.

Thanks - regular bolt 38 ft-lbs and flanged bolt is 43 ft-lbs -- so decided on 40 ft-lbs for M10 (8.8.)
