    So what's the deal with AP standards? Are they ready or do you need more measurements? I discovered that after Moab my factory shackle hangers are bent and causing my leafs to twist. I acutally may need to get new leafs as well.:(

    What is everyone tourquing their shackle to mount and leaf bolts too? Factory says 89#, but it doesn't seem to allow for full droop or articulation at that spec.

    Droop is not limited by bolt torque.

    I used the technical specification of "Til your wrist clicks".

    89ft lbs is the factory spec and what I suggest following for all of the bolts.

    hmm, i wasn't planning on a flip, but after some close inspecting and many many measurements, it would appear that i have bent the hell out of my factory hangers. i'll be cutting off the stock and needing replacements. now i just have to decide if i want to flip or not.
