Hello,

A friend is putting in new rear leaf springs in my 96 Tacoma 5sp v6 ext cab 4x4. He broke the spline bolt of the lower shackle. We are going to get a grade 8 bolt and nut to replace it. Does anyone know of the proper torgue rating to avoid breaking another bolt?

Thanks for any help!

Thanks!

We're going to use the bolt type that goes on the front of the spring. The only difference between the broken part and the new bolt is that the broken part came with a spline and the new bolt has a head. We figure it should work. Thanks again!
