I'm in process of reassembling the front suspension of my 66 Impala 2D coupe after a clean & rebuild and can't find any tightening specs for reattaching the idler arm to the idler arm shaft. I've checked both the Assembly Manual and the Chassis Manual. Any one know how to tighten that bushing assembly?
Idler Arm to Frame Nuts are torqued to 45 ft./lbs. while the Idler Arm to Relay Rod Stud Nut is torqued to 40 ft./lbs. according to Chevrolet's Chassis Service Manual.
Dave, thanks for getting back to me but I'm not talking about the Relay Rod or the nut on top of the shaft, I found those torques. I'm talking about the nut that holds the idler arm to the bottom of the idler arm shaft.
