What is the right way to install high steer arms on Chevy knuckles?

Any torques specs?

I have the Sky Manufacturing tall d44 arms (they are sooooo sweet! Very beef and they fit very precisely).

With the studs I ordered with the Sky arms, one half of the thread is longer than the other side of the stud. Does the longer or shorter thread go into the knuckle? How do you know that the stud is threaded to the correct depth in the knuckle?

Lock washers came with the kit, should I use any threadlocker as well?

What should everything be torqued down to? Is 85 ft/lbs right?

Thanks for the replies. Got it all torqued down real good, but I did use the lockwashers (installed it before I read your post) and thread locker.

The Sky Arms and hardware kit are excellent quality! Very strong and fit perfect!

Thanks for the help!
