Idler arm brace question

3280 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  DLM

I have a stock 2000 XE CC 4x4 and would like to start doing some light off-roading. Preliminary research has told me that installing an idler arm brace is a good investment for peace of mind. Is that a good place to begin? If so, I see that Calmini and 4x4 offer one. Is one "better" than the other?

Can anyone provide torque values for the 3 bolts and 1 bolt under the arm, itself?

Thanks in advance.
tight on the 1 under the arm. i don't have my FSM with me, but i would guess approximately 30-40

and very tight on the others....maybe about 90 on the other 3 holding to the frame.

and use some lock tite and make sure to go back in a couple hundred miles and double check they are all tight.
