roadmaster steering stablizer

Wondering if anyone knows the correct torque for the factory bolts on the chassis bracket? the install instructions say check with the manufacturer.
I have a 2018 Alante on a f53 chassis 16,000 lbs. Thanks

Roadmaster should have that information on file.

For our Safe-T-Plus installation the chassis bracket was ~250 ft lbs. Which is what most chassis manufactures recommend.

Bolt Torque

I agree on 250 Ft Lbs of torque. I just installed a Roadmaster steering stabilizer and after getting everything torqued EXCEPT the bracket mounted to the spring I tightened the spring bolts as tight as I could and then had my local Ford dealer torque them correctly. My torque wrench only goes to 100 Ft Lbs and I wasn't going to buy another for two nuts. Cost me $40 but well worth it.
