leaf spring U bolts

Post by Vangoat on Sun May 28, 2017 12:27 pm

Hello, I just installed new leaf springs from McVeigh Springs and also had to get new U bolts made by them. The U bolts came with washers and extra tall nuts but no lock washers. Do I need lock washers or lock nuts or can I use red lock tite or will this be sufficient as is after torquing . Also, would standard torquing, 30 to 40 lbs. rear and 50 to 60 front be correct for non locking nuts. Thank you.
