part name - 65ish buggy front susp

Post by kyleb on Sat Jul 13, 2013 2:13 am

I have a list of torque specs for the front end of my buggy. The front spindles are aftermarket, but I don't know that changes anything.

What is the name of the 2 bolts that hold the spindle to the suspension? What would be the torque specs on it? I just tightened them quite a bit, then realized that they pivot with the suspension going up/down

this isn't the best picture, it only shows one end of the bolt, not the end with the nut.

King or link pin. Always get the two confused. Pretty sure they don't get torqued just the two bolts that hold them in

Thats the link pin there are two per spindle......king pins are the ones that are straight up and down.....all you do to tighten link pins is loosen the pinch bolts and spin the link pins til theres no play.....spin one way and it loosens and the other way tightens.....once there is no play tighten the pinch bolts back down
