I have a question for those who have installed the kits.

Do I need to torque everything or do I thicken them snug. Not reef on it right but tight.

I will also be wire wheel cleaning the bolts and nuts... Bad idea or good idea? Anything I need to buy to help them from getting rusty or seized in the future

Best idea is to torque everything to factory specs, and use green or blue lock tight.

Dont wire-wheel the factory bolts!
Youll take the anti-rust coating off them.
Let them sock in degreaser, and give a light brush with a brass (not steel!) wire-brush if needed.

Thank goodness someone replied for me! So a brass brush will be acceptable to clean debris off and rust buildup.

Shit, forgot the degreaser I have but it's purple... Purple plus?
