2nd Gen Torque settings

After searching a bit, it seems torque values are kind of spread around the forums. Since I do not have a shop manual for my truck yet, I am trying to put together a set of torque setting for my 2012 in one spot.

For now, I researched suspension items since that was my first major modification. (borrowed mostly from BJMoose's OME install thread)

I'd appreciate any input on corrections.

Front Suspension:
Lower Shock Mount - 61 ft lbs
Upper Shock Hat center Jesus bolt (take it off accidently and you will be screaming his name, or something else) - 20 ft lbs
Upper Shock Hat Mount (3 small bolts) - 47 ft lbs
UCA to Frame * (long pain in the ass bolt) - 85 ft lbs
UCA to spindle (adjustment) - 60 ft lbs
Sway bar mount to frame - 30 ft lbs
Sway bar to spindle - 52 ft lbs

Rear Suspension:
Lower Shock Mount - 74 ft lbs
Upper Shock Mount - 15 ft lbs
Rear Leaf Pack * (Front bolt and two rear bolts) - 89 ft lbs
Ubolts - 73 ft lbs (stock), 75 ft lbs can be recommended by some aftermarket vendors

Wheels:
Lugs * - 83 ft lbs

Notes:

* torque under load (wheels resting on level ground under truck weight)

*edit for Ubolts* Toyota transposed numbers in the service manual for ubolt torque. It is actually 73 ft lbs and not 37.

I have been collecting and creating this list myself for the past few days. Mainly because the 'Service Specifications - Suspension' link can be a bit confusing to a newbie.

Torque Specs link:
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...que-specs.html

Guide of install - Front:
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...removal-8.html

Guide of install - AAL:
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...econd-gen.html

This would be a nice sticky IMO.

Some of this will be a great addition, however because there are various changes in torque value over the multiple years and platforms, you would have one VERY large list. I have access to torque specs from Toyota, and I can tell you it would take 300 lines to even try and post just the torque specs for the engines for just a few years. Perhaps limit it to certain sections of the Tacoma for specs?

I just replaced my LCA bushings and was looking to re-torque all the major points in the suspension and used the attached PDF that is floating around TW.

Besides what is mentioned in the OP don't forget about:

LCA to frame (cam bolts) ~100 ft lbs
LCA to spindle ~118 ft lbs
tie rod ~41 ft lbs

CaliAsh, after some research on this site, Toyota appears to have typo'd the U-bolts torque at 37. Everyone seems to think this should be 73 lbs instead.

Yeah, I need to edit that as I found that out a few weeks ago. The service manual transposed the numbers for the u-bolts.
