Shocks should not be torqued. They are tightened until the rubber bushing squeeze to the correct diameter. Usually the same am the washers.

Really I thought they were suppose to be torqued, Well at least now I have a Torque wrench.
Thanks for the info.

That depends on the unit itself. On the Dutch Star they took 150 ft lbs.

Actually all vehicle bolts are torqued to a build sheet that the manufacturer goes by at their station of build, but usually once the vehicle leaves, most bolts are just tightened up a certain amount by arm strength and feel, or a set number of hammer blows by an air gun and all's well.


I've seen most shock mounts have a larger bolt-stop at the end of threads, so you just tighten up to the stop and forget as that's as far as the nut will go.

Depends on the way they are mounted. If they have a stud that the rubber donuts go over, they don't have a torque spec. Ones that have eyes that go on a stud or bolt through the eye that type has a torque spec. For instance the shock mount bolts for my F53 is 250 ft lb.
