1) How Do I tell if I have a #1 Joint or #2 Joint
A: Look at the Spigot Cap that holds the rod onto any of the brackets. If Spigot Cap = 800201 then it is a #1 Joint, If spigot Cap = 800055 then it is a #2 Joint.
2) What does mounting height mean?
A: This is in reference to ground clearance- L = Low Mount, H= High Mount, XL = Extra Low, beam mounts under the Axle, XH = Extra High. Please refer to the beam chart directing how to measure you beam for mounting height.
3) How do I determine the weight capacity of the suspension on my truck?
A: The spigot caps used to secure the Torque Rods onto the brackets indicates the weight capacity of the suspension. 800201 cap = 40,000 lb. 800055 = 46K or higher weight capacity.
4) Which Restrictor Can do I have?
A: Standard Can measure 4 ¼” high and 12 ¾” diameter
A: High Stability Can measure 5” tall and 11 ¾ diameter
To optimize ride quality, see restrictor can chart for recommendations based on your truck application.
5) Can I repair my beams?
A: Cracks that are in weld only can be repaired, if cracks are in the steel plates the beam should be replaced.
6) My truck rides rough, How can I make it softer?
A: Changing the restrictor can will change how the truck rides, see restrictor can bulleting for options.
7) Do I need special tools and presses to re-bush my truck?
A: No Special tools required, Use Tire Soap or Dish Soap and a rubber mallet to pop the bushings into the eye of the Torque Rod. DO NOT USE OIL OR GREASE.
8) Are Urethane Bushings better than Rubber:
A: Beware of “Will FIT” Urethane bushings, The friction results in structural damage to the Rods or Brackets when these are used.
