New Lift 300 mile torque

Ok so I really went 600 miles before I retorqued my main players (control arms track bars) and I found something interesting. I did install a Teraflex Monster Track Bar and its great but these were the two connections that actually took about an eighth or a quarter of a turn until she made that wonderful click.

Yes I also added the Northridge bolt kit when we lifted it. Its a pain in the neck to roll around and retorque all of these little guys but now that my track bar took some love I am going to have to check it every 500 miles or so. Anyone else find this to be true?

BTW it still rides great and even though these nuts took a minor bit of torque I think I was still in decent shape.

The pinch sleeve bolt ? I replaced those with grade 8 from Tractor supply.

Grab a 24" breaker bar at Harbor freight. Makes a great helper torquing bolts. Instead of a combo wrench use a socket and anchor the bolt you're working on against the ground.

By any chance, would you remember what size these were exactly?
Thanks a bunch!

Hmm I forget but I know they were a tighter fit. One had stripped out and iirc the other kept loosening like yours. The replacements are staying tight.
