Over the weekend I'm installing a new front track bar bushing and a OME steering stabilizer. I've seen several references to the importance of torquing the track bar bolt to the correct spec but I don't have a shop manual. Can anyone tell me the torque spec for this bolt. Thanks

According to the FSM: The front track bar: Ball stud nut ( at the frame) is 60 ft lbs and the axle bracket nut is 40 ft lbs. The steering stablizer: Axle bracket and drag link is 55 ft lbs. Those are the specs for a 2003 Rubicon but I can't see yours being different. A while back there was a guy on this forum that had a link to FSM's. I suggest you use the search function to find one for yourself. It will make repair much easier.

Thanks for taking the time to post the information, a shop manual is on the shopping list.
