Help - Need Torque Specs
 
I am about to install a McGaughy 2/4 kit and trying to find the torque specifications for suspension components on a 13 ram. I have the info from a 2009 tech manual, but not sure if they are the same for a 13.
I'm looking for stuff like front ball joints, tie rod ends, sway bar links, shocks, track bar, etc.
If anyone can confirm the 2009 specs are OK, that would work, or know what may be different.[IMG]http://www.*************/images/smilies/shrug.gif[/IMG]
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all the info. Looks like most are the same as what I found in the 09 manual. Only real difference I see is the ball joint nut torque. The manual I have shows "40 Ft. Lbs, then an additional 90 Deg.", but that would probably come out to about the same as posted above.
This is great info and will be a real help.:smileup:
