    Just checked mine(200miles)...took quite a few turns to get it up to 75ft/lbs.

    EDIT;
    Actual recommended torque is 52 ft/lbs(19mm)

    They had the same problem on 2nd gens. IIRC service manual stated 37 ft/lbs.
    I was over in the Suspension forum and a guy has a 3rd gen with creaky rear end.
    They felt just like my 2nd gen did.
