    I'm getting ready to put the front suspension back together and I'm having trouble finding the torque specs for the front caliper bracket (to hub) bolts. I've seen a range of numbers posted, with 85 lb-ft being the most common. Seems like a lot for a bolt of that size, but what do I know.

    Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks!

    That sounds about right. And the caliper to bracket is around 25ft-lbs IIRC.

    thanks. It's been a couple weeks since I took them out, but I don't even remember a caliper to bracket bolt. my memory is the caliper just fits into the bracket and is secured with the pin. Am I misremembering?

    I might be thinking about the rear calipers for the caliper to bracket bolt. I haven't had stock front calipers in a very long time so I don't remember the exact process.
