Torque Specs - E450 Sway Bar Install

Does anybody have the torque specs for a newer E450 w/ regards to the front and rear sway bars?

Hellwig has simple bolt on instructions but the sheets refer to 'Ford Specs' as far as torquing the bolts back down. Not very helpful - reaching out directly to Hellwig resulted in response advising I contact Ford. I'm sure Ford isn't going to touch a aftermarket part install w/ a 10' pole ....

So has anybody replaced the front and rear bars w/ a Hellwig product?

Roadmaster has torque specs on their product, but I can't be positive the bolts are the same. The Roadmaster also costs significantly more then Hellwig and requires I drill for the rear sway hangar bar install. I don't want to drill anything.

Anybody have the torque specs?

Found the following question and answer, hope it helps

Question I just purchased a set of sway bars for my Ford E450. They are made by Hellwig (7180 rear sway bar, and 7718 front sway bar).


Answer 75-80 ft.lbs on the sway bar end link bolts
25-30 ft.lbs on the bushing clamps to frame\axle mount
These are FoMoCo specs.....Don't see any reason aftermarket would deviate from factory specs. Remember to use anti-seize on threads if you have it handy
