    There is a great debate over the spec, but 50-70 is good…..

    I wrote this up a while ago when I did mine 2006 Tundra DC

    Step 9: Hand tighten the 4 bolts, add thread locker to the bolts (red) Or buy new bolts

    · Spec - 61 ft-lbf

    · 17 mm, new bolts might be different

    · Ease the torque wrench for accurate spec


    Step 10: Tighten lower ball joint castle nut

    · Spec - 103 ft-lbf

    · You can over torque to get the cotter pin to line up

    · Add new cotter pin


    Step 11: Attach LBJ to tie rod and tighten to snug

    · Spec - 45 ft-lbf

    · You can over torque to get the cotter pin to line up

    · Add new cotter pin

    I'm doing the same job in the next couple of days on my 05 DC 2WD, just about to pick up another torque wrench. I was looking at the 2005-2006 FSM and I'm a little confused.

    I know that the nut is 103 FT IBS, and Tie Rod is 67 FT IBS

    But the 4 bolts listed on page SA-79 diagram shows 59 FT IBS, but on page SA-84 diagram shows 48 FT IBS and on page SA-87 it says to tighten to the 48 FT IBS.

    So 48 or 59?

    @G500XL i did both my tundra and sequoia to 61 lbs on those 4 bolts. That video I linked is from 1stgenoffroad.

    Toyota did a recall/update on the lowers at some point. Wonder if the spec numbers changed then
