Question newbie installing a lift some questions

Just finished the front,shocks,steering damper,coils,where can I find the torque specs?
I need one coils spring retainer/holder bracket,the one on the passanger side of my 99 sahara was missing?
whats the easiest way to tighten the bolts on the top of the shocks,or whats the easiest way to stop the shock from turning so I can torque it to spec?
Noticed the bushings on my sway bar end links were shot,where can I source either upgraded end links or poly bushings?

thanks

Try this link for torque specs:

http://www.dailydriventj.com/download/Torque.xls

For the shocks, there should be some wrench flats on the bottom of the bolt, if there aren't you can snap some vice grips on the top of the shaft.

I would try quadratec or poly performance for replacement bushings.

the saga continues,front is done except for torqueing all the bolts to spec and endlinks downd the road.

when I was doing the transfercase drop(spacers)the front nut (propably tack welded)inside the frame rail came off!! now I cant put a bolt there,5 of the 6 spacers and bolts were replaced with success? any ideas what to do??

then while removing one of the oem bumpstops the bolt snapped even after a good soaking in liquid wrench!

any advice would help,thanks

Those "nuts" inside the frame rails are called nutserts, try searching for that and you should come up with a couple of good threads on here with some tips on replacing them.
