    Torque spec thread I've been meaning to put together for some time. It doesn't list them all, just what I had time for. I'd like to hit the engine/s and a couple other areas as time permits. Its just a torque spec guide consisting of numbers that came to my head during a dream; the same values I would use on my personal truck.

    ** Disclaimer** By no means do I take responsibility if you torque your shit down wrong and it falls apart at 90mph. Consideration must be taken to inspect fastener condition before reuse, if it looks like it came off with loctite; re apply some, most suspension bolts/nuts are suggested to be replaced after use, if this concerns you, than replace them, make sure the torque wrench you are using is worth a shit, etc. For the 99% of you that can understand this, carry on. For the 1% that may feel endangered by this information, leave the fucking thread.
