Pivot bearings

My project has been taking a 6" skyjacker lift of the 95 F150. Been tinkering with if for a good while. I have a question that relates to the pivot bearing as I have been told a few different ways to tighten them and to what torque.


95 150 4.9L 2WD

it is all back together, going in for an alignment. how do I torque the pivot bearings, and to what spec?


what torque do I do on the radius arm nut (I replaced the bushings as well)?



Thanks fellas

First off, what are you referring to as a "pivot bearing"? The axle pivot is a rubber (or polyurethane) bushing. There is no bearing there. I'm out of town so best I can suggest it to search previous threads for the torque specs.

That is what I have heard other folks reference it, I could be wrong.....


Yes at the end of the front axel, I am aware that there is no bearing but rather a rubber bushing. It is the pivot point, at one end is the front wheel and the opposite is a bolt with a rubber grommet/bushing. Need the spec for that bolt, and was wondering if it matters if it needs to be torqued with the wheel off the ground or not.



Soory if I was not clear, never done this sort of work before.

You want to tighten that with the truck on the ground. No idea on the torpue spec, its not that critical.
