    Believe it or not it's tough to find this spec for some reason. I looked up the u-bolt torque based on the various diameters of the many u-bolts out there, and came up with 85-90 ft lbs. If you've messed with the u-bolts, torque to spec after install and again after a few hundred miles driving. Hope this helps.

    Not sure if you noticed, but this thread is over a year old.
    Here’s some information:
    If you are using new OEM U-bolts, that torque setting of 74lb would apply.
    You should never reuse ubolts, the threads are designed to stretch when torqued.
    If you have after market bolts, the Toyota spec is meaningless. Use the torque recommendation from the mfg.
