NEWTON TORQUE SPECS: HELP

I recently installed a 2.5" leveling kit from Newton with 4" rear blocks and Newton Traction Bars. Since I can't seem to find the instructions but remember that I have to go back and re-tighten them after xxxx miles to xxxx ft/lbs. I have called and emailed Jason about 10 times without a single response. If any of you that are running Newton Traction Bars could assist I would greatly appreciate it.

Something is up. I have been emailing him to order a set of bars to my buddy and no one can get ahold of him. What torque specs are you wanting. I have my directions somewhere. I know the u bolts on the rear blocks are 150

I just went over mine after about 200 miles and tightened the crap out of them. Didnt torque them. Never tightened them since and its been over a year. He is hard to get ahold of, I ordered a leveling kit last wednesday and it was here Monday so he may be backed up or something. I know he was hard to get up with when I first started dealing with him, now its about impossible lol. but ill put up with that for the price and quality you get
