Beno advised a stud torque a while back when Toyota introduced a superseded stud for these trucks. The new studs come with Loctite compound on them and they are advised to torque to 35 LB-FT I believe. I would have to find the post by Beno to confirm.

Studs 35 LB-FT
Nuts 71 LB-FT

Make sure the cone washers and flat washers are installed and DRY, not greased or oiled.
Found it:
36 LB-FT
That’s what I was looking for. Thanks bilt4me

I did say most. I might tear mine apart and torque them now.

I was criticized for torquing mine to 45 LB-FT and using red Loctite.

Then it turns out I was pretty damned close and they added thread locker.


I have not had anything come loose on mine in 130K miles of DD.

Cleaning the block and noticed some very minor pitting around cylinders is this a issue that needs to be decked or will the gasket matt the services together and still make a good seal?

I hope to love my front. I won't order a rear. Dave's s***ty comms and totally f***ing bald face lying ruined the process of buying.

Your the first person I have heard of that has anything bad to say about delta VS.

Your a brave man. I wouldn't post anything like that about a vendor that still hadn't shipped my $1,000.00 + order lol.

What's he gonna do refund me?
I haven't seen many poster, but via pm in have had discussions.
And it's $4000+

I've posted about it plenty in my build thread. I'm not rehashing it here.

When a vendor tells you weekly you're on schedule and then the moment it goes past schedule he stops talking, that's an issue. Especially when the schedule was 12 weeks and it'll be 22 when the product arrives.

s*** gets delayed. I understand. But never once was a delay expressed.
