This is a discussion on Torque specs for tunnel brace... within the Suspension and Handling forums, part of the General Help category; I just got a UMI tunnel brace and was wondering if anyone knew the torque requirements for the 4 bolts?...

    It's not a whole lot... just can't recall what the spec is. I did use a threadlock compound on the bolts.

    As will I. Just don't remember what I did when I put it in the SFCs. I guess I can just check with my torque wrench every ~5th/lbs. I feel like it should be less than 100?

    I'm thinking it was like 20-25 lb.ft. We're talking about the cross brace behind the transmission underneath the front of the driveshaft, right? Those bolts are not very big as I recall.

    Yup, connects each side of the 3-point SFC together. The stocker is a stamped piece of flimsy/flexible metal and I have a tubular replacement for it. Probably should contact UMI, I feel like 25 might be low.

    Red are the bolts I'd like to know about. Green is the stamped metal.
