Front lift is done... About halfway through the rear. Waiting to torque until it's down. Looking for torque specs for

Frame side leaf spring bushing
Upper and lower leaf shackle bushings
Leaf spring u-bolts
Transfer Case drop bolts

Lift is 2" OME springs with OME bushings on stock sgacklrs with a OME T-case drop.

According to my Factory Service manual for 1987 to 1990:
Crossmember ...30 ft. lbs.
U-Bolts...90 ft. lbs.
Shackles...95 ft. lbs.
Main eye bolts...105 ft. lbs.

You can tighten the U-Bolts anytime.
The shackles and main eye should be torqued with the full weight of the vehicle on the ground. (You already know this).
With a 2" drop, I would be certain to use grade 8 bolts and I would tighten an additional 10 to 20 ft. lbs. or whatever OME instructions state. Use Neversieze on all fasteners.
Good Luck, L.M.

Thank you so much! Lift is installed and it's like a new jeep!
