Question Upper arm bushings, what torque?

Does anyone know what upper arm bushings should be torqued to? I think i over tightened mine and now the shifts on my truck seem a lot ruffer, or atleast i notice them a lot more. So what torque, or how do i know if they are too lose or too tight?

Are you asking about the UCA to frame bolt/nut? Or a different bushing? I've got a book w/ all the torque specs if you can describe it a little further

No just the nut that runs accross the UCA, it is the nut you would need to remove if you want to replace the stock UCA if that makes sense.

Here's a pic

Just got the pic, I'm checking


If it is the UCA to frame bolt/nut then it's 85 ft-lbs for a prerunner

Yup, 85 ft-lbs or 115 Nm is what the Haynes repair manual has for a prerunner. Hope that fixes your problem.

not sure if this feasible but you should tighten control arm bushings with the weigth of the vehicle on the suspension

Very true. Sometimes it can be tough but all suspension bolts should be tightened / torqued to specs. with the full weight of the vehicle on the suspension.
