Energy One

Can someone help me out with the right torque specs for my 08 K9? I have looked in the service manual and see two different ones like 45ft. lbs for the rear axel nut and then I see in another section 55 to 65ft lbs. Put antiseize on the axel rod but what color loctite do you use? I dont see that mentioned anywhere.

rear axel nut torque?

color loctite?

The manual is really good when calling for loctite, if it doesn't list any, don't use any. It also lists the number (like 2470 or whatever) which I finally wrote on the cover of my manual so I didn't have to look it up every damn time :old2: If I remember right when I did mine I split the difference and went 60ftlbs.

Thank You! I just confirmed that with someone else also. What is weird is there was red on the threads of the axle bolt so I just really wanted to be sure because that manual is goofy.
