Default Torque specs, front ball joints??

I've looked everywhere in my chilton and haynes manual for the torque specs for both the upper and lower ball joints on a 93 4wd and can't find them. Anybody know what they are???

Haynes manual, steering and suspension systems, page 10-3.

Upper balljoint stud nut ..........................85-100*
Lower balljoint stud nut ..........................95-110*
*Follow special installation procedure to prevent binding when torquing (see section 5)

Sorry to butt in on your thread. I am having the same problem, But I only have a chilton manual. What are the special installation instructions?

Thanks

The chilton's manual really sucks for front ball joints. It doesn't show you a darn thing about them.

Oops, I put for 2wd but I edited it for 4wd. So it's correct now.

Basically you tighten the lower balljoint nut to 35-40 ft-lbs. Install and tighten the upper nut to 85-100 ft-lbs. Then tighten the lower to 95-110 ft-lbs.
