Urethane Bushings ........

Was reading service manual regarding the remounting of the rear suspension cradle after dropping it for bushing installation. It states that new bolts are required. After torque spec of 96 ft.lbs. is achieved, an addl turn is needed and an angle meter is required to achieve an addl.40 degrees to finalize the job. I will post part # for tool and bolts that is specified in manual when I get back to work in morning. Has anyone done this or are you just re attaching sub frame ? How critical is this procedure?

We've done these a few times, it's really not that big of a deal and shouldn't take you more than a couple of hours, alone and on your back at home. The important part is to make sure you get the correct torque, we didn't use the J-tool to do it and we've NEVER had a problem, and I really don't think it's necassary to replace the bolts. Just keep in mind that these are the same people (GM) that say to pull the motor to replace the cam.....
