I have a quick question about the torque sequence on a 2.9. In the book I am using it says to torque in 4 steps. 1st step 22 ft lbs. 2nd step 51-55 ft. lbs. 3rd step wait five minutes. 4th step turn 90 degrees. It is the fourth step that I am confused about because to me it is not very specific. Maybe if I didn't think so hard I would just tighten them up another 90 degrees but I want to make sure that in fact I am suppose to tighten them. Any body have any input on this. Thanks.

I just did that on my truck, and it was recommended by my mechanic that I use a half inch drive socket instead of a 3/8" drive socket due to the amount of torque that will result. He said the smaller socket most likely will break.
