    Question Spohn adjustable T/A bolt torque question

    I recently bought & swapped on a Spohn chassis mount adjustable torque arm, just like the one pictured below. It was bought used, so I have/had no instructions, although basic install is pretty much a simple "remove & replace" deal.

    Install went smooth as silk, pinion angle is set at -2*, and yes, it has the infamous Spohn torque arm clunk sometimes.

    My question, in the picture below, how tight should that particular bolt be? Should it be torqued to any spec, tightened as tight as I can get it, good and snug, or what? All other bolts/nuts only tighten as far as the bushing sleeves will let them, but this one, when tightened as tight as I can get it, seems to cause a binding up of that pivot point.

    Thanks in advance.

    p.s. Don't mind the kindergarten MS Paint job of mine, lol

    I have the same set-up. Good and snug, enough to make that joint a little stiff.

    You could alway e-mail Spohn and ask for the torque specs?

    Already did, but since many of us use one, I hoped that someone who has one on their car would either know the answer, or have their instructions and share that info while I wait patiently for a response from Spohn.
