Re: TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS-1994-2001 CHEVY S10’s & GMC SONOMA’s
It would also be nice to correct the mis guided Haynes and store bought chiltons manual on torque specs for the pinion shaft yoke to u joint strap "bolts". Their book says 180 ft. lbs of torque which i know cannot be right. I have already busted off 3 bolts in the past attempting this (and yes they were all grade 8 or higher bolts). With those size bolts...your lucky to see 75 ft. lbs before they twist and break.
