    TORQUE VALUES FOR HARDWARE AND JAM NUTS
    • All 14mm and 9/16” bolts are torqued to 90-100 ft-lbs.
    • All 12mm and ½” bolts are torqued to 75-80 ft-lbs.
    • All 10mm and 3/8 bolts are torqued to 30-35 ft-lbs.
    • All #10-32 bolts are torqued to 25 to 30 inch pounds
    • All 7/8” Jam Nuts are to be torqued 200-220 ft-lbs. Up to ½” of threads showing past the
    jam nut is safe for final adjustment. These specifications are critical for the overall
    longevity of the threaded section.
    • All 1” Jam Nuts are to be torqued to 250-300 ft-lbs. GET YOUR BIG BOY PANTS ON!

    Yeah I read the instructions very complete multiple times and followed this to the t. Problem is the joints are coming apart overtime from small movements at their bolted locations. Mine separate on the highway every time then u get a slight axle shift and Traction control light kicks in and startles u for a second. Lucky I have control while driving and wasn't doing anything dumb at the time.

    My Krawler Joints have 1.25" shanks and have more miss alignment ability than the Currie joints when installed into std axle-frame mounts unless you use the Currie narrow series joint, I've ran both without issues from either one.

    So pick your poison both work.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
