Is there such a thing as a comprehensive list of torque values for bolts on the Super Six?

I didn’t build my car but have looked through the build manual and it doesn’t seem to include torque settings.

I’ve stripped my suspension as one of the shocks has a leak. I want to ensure that the top and bottom shock bolts are appropriately tight.

I also need to replace a front upper ball joint.

Hi mate... What suspension components are the Super Six, any idea? You could use the values of the donor vehicle. Mine’s got Sierra components so I use the Haynes manual for any torque critical stuff if necessary.

I’m sure some super six builders will be along with more helpful comments! 😁

Yup, I think that's what I'll do.  I might start compiling a guide.  As a novice builder this is one of the little things that slows you up a lot!

If it's a Super Six then it won't be the same as the original car as all of the brackets are welded onto the axle by Tiger and the suspension components are completely different. When I built mine I just did them up f'ing tight and never had a problem, but if you want a figure then I think you will need to speak to Tiger.

Tight enough works. It's not like the bolt is clamping two things together, it's really acting like a pin.
