    Quickie - Lots of information in Trail Gear / OEM vs ARP....but I have not seen where it is specified what torque to use when installing new studs into the top and bottom of the knuckle?

    When installing new studs I use the same torque values plus red loctite on the knuckle end......... 11mm diameter, FSM states 40-60 foot pounds of tourque
    12mm stud, 1979 and on, FSM states 65-79 foot pounds.....
