In the spec area the rear u-bolts are stated at 40 some ft/lbs. I just put on a set of Deavers mini packs and PRG's instructions state 80ft/lbs?

Second, what is the reasoning of replacing the u-bolts? They are after all just a bolt in essence. I reused mine since they showed no bad signs of degredation. As well, PRG basically stated to reuse them in their instructions. Is it just a safety item that most would like to error on the safer side?

Same with the front nuts for the swaybar links to swaybar. Do those really need to be replaced and why? They don't seem special at all and they tighten back on fine.

Thanks,
Dan

Replacing U-Bolts is a personal preference. I have had an equal number of people tell me to either replace them or reuse them.

When I had a shop make my new leaf pack they told me to reuse the bolts and there would be no issue with that. So I did.
