15K mile Maintenance

Recommended Posts

I was reading that you should have the rear u-bolts re-torqued every 15K miles. :o Anyone had a problem with the rear suspension? By that being a 15K mile maintenance item it makes me think there has been a problem along the way somewhere. But, if a problem exists wouldn't 15k be a bit long to put off the re-torque/inspection? :headscratch: I think I'll check mine a bit sooner.

FYI, torque is 92 ft.lbs. in the typical cross bolt pattern and the vehicle MUST be resting on it's wheels (not jacked up).

I was just gearing up for this service myself.

Thanks for the torque spec also.

Does anyone have a manual outlining what gets lubed at this service.

I was looking for a service manual on CD on fleabay but i haven't seen one yet.

Thanks!
