    All installed, just need to torque them to the correct poundage.
    I think 90 on the back ones and 55 on the front's from what I've found w/ the energy suspension kit. Sound right?

    Here's the importance of being patient and letting the penetrating oil do its job. By all rights, this bolt should have snapped off with the 26 in breaker bar I had on it. But in the back of my mind I kept telling myself how big of a job it could be if the cage nuts spin loose, so I used moderate pressure everyday for quite a few days and kept adding PB blaster till that ran out and then Liquid Wrench.
    The cage nut was the least of my concerns apparently.
    This was one of the rare jobs that went right and as planned.

    I know the picture doesn't do it much justice but the rusted diameter is about 5/16th of and inch and ready to twist off right there.
