Ball Joint / Tie Rod end torque specs for 68 B Body


Good morning CP forum,

I am finishing up on my front end re- furb at glacial pace and I am hoping that someone could chime in on torque specs for:

-upper ball joint

- lower ball joint

- outer and inner tie rod ends

Thx. Jake

I never torqued mine to a spec, I just made them tight, got the castle nut to align with the hole, and stuck in a cotter pin.

This is from the 67 Chassis manual. I don't have the 68 manual but I checked and the ball joints and tie rods are the same for 67-68. Sorry, my scanner it too time consuming to scan and post it that way!

 X 2 ! I doubt anyone ever torqued them.

Never torque mine either, even though I have the specs, always make sure it's tight and well seated, then slide in the cotter in.
