    You dont have to, It is not a rubber bushing like the control arms, It is an inner sleeve with a poly style support that can spin. Torque the sucker down. You can shim it out to make a tighter tolerance to minimize clunking too!

    Fixed! Brought it to a local off road shop. He re torqued the lower shock bolt to 450lbs while at full droop. He also notice the brake pad clip loose and a layer of coating was worn of. He tightened it and greased it up. For good measure he re-torqued the LCA's and UCA's. He recommended I go to dealer and get the clips replaced by warranty. I was charged 2hrs shop time but drove away with the truck as quiet as the day I got it so worth every cent!

    here, on frf
    i think he is referring towards safety. i am definitely not comfortable with my truck on jackstands while trying to exert that much torque on a bolt. if everything is on and truck is on the ground, theres no jack stand for it to fall off of. unless you have a proper lift, then it wont matter
