    Great thread, I use it often.
    I had an alignment done 2 weeks ago after installing my front Kings. Ever since the alignment things felt aligned great, but clunky over any bumps. Sure enough, the LCA cam bolts/nuts, all 4, moved about 1/8 to 1/4 turn to hit the proper torque values. I'm guessing they were at 50-60 when they should have been at 100. Haven't driven much today but even going over my driveway curb things feel right again.
    Also double checked my lug nuts after Discount tire put on new tires this week. I always worry about them being over-torqued from some over-zealous 19 year old with an air impact and damaging my wheel studs. One guy in the waiting room said they broke his wheel stud which added even more worries. Checked mine today and they were right on torque value. Pretty happy with my local Discount Tire, seems well run.

    Are the leaf spring u-bolts really only 37 ft lbs ??? That's gotta be a mistake.

    Workin' on it....
    It is a mistake. Someone suggested it was flipped and should be more like 73 ft lbs. I followed the torque chart and had driven my truck around with the u-bolts at 37 ft lbs after swapping leaf packs for a couple of days (nothing happened) but yeah frickin typos.....

    Getting ready to change spark plugs(first time for me on this vehicle). Was double checking on torque specs for coil pack bolts and spark plugs. Excellent post. Thank you!
    No problem loading here.
    Those first pics look like coil pack bolts. They don't take much tightening for sure.

    This weekend I am changing the oil, front and rear differential and transfer case fluids in my 2015 TRD for the first time. Also adding SumoSprings to the rear axle, and SuperBumps to the front. I sat down tonight to research what torque settings for each of these, and one search later I find this great post. Tacoma World is truly a wonderful place!
