Question Torque Spec

Searched but couldn't find...

What's the torque spec on the rear ball joint castle nut? The 30mm nut that fastens the ball joint to the top of the rear axle...

Sláinte...

Thanks Kevin. I looked in my RAVE and in my paperback workshop manual, but couldn't find it.

I was able to get a MAC 30mm socket in there, it was tight though. Took everything I had to break it loose.The only problem now is breaking loose the long bolts that attach the ball joint carrier to the A frame arms. Soaked them in penetrating fluid lastnight...hopefully that will do the trick...

The long bolts are seazed in the ball joint carrier
I was able to get remove the 2 nuts and remove the passenger side arm, but since the bolts are seazed, I can't get the other arm off. I'll soak it more.

I would try to remove what you have left and work on it on a bench.....also the rear bushings on those a-arms could stand a replacment as well im sure!

cut the nut end of the bolt off and try to remove the other arm then you'll have to cut the bolts flush with the "ball joint carrier" then drill....at least that what it sounds like
