carli mini pack ?

So last night I was finally able to install the Carli mini leaf packs. Install was smooth but I just had one question, the directions stated to torque the u-bolts to 100 ft/lbs. But when I installed my icon lift they were torqued to 185 ft/lbs. Why the discrepancy? 100 ft/lbs doesn't seem enough to me. Ill post reviews once I drive the truck.

The new ubolts could be a higher grade, meaning they don't need to be torqued as high, but I will still check them

Idk, they look about the same... I called Carli suspensions and they couldn't give me a clear answer as to why, but they said ill be fine. Can any vendors shed light onto the subject.

It's what it sounds like to me bud, higher or strong metal material doesn't need to be torqued as high cuz they have a higher or stronger clamping force then softer metals

U-bolt torque specs usually hover around 110 ft.lbs. with a torque re-check around 500 miles after installation. We normally torque them to about 150 ft.lbs. (many customers drive a long way in and don't want to come back for a re-torque) in the shop and have never had an issue.
