Hi,

I'm looking for the correct torque settings for the steering and suspension components on my 79 G30. I've found autozone have some usefull online manuals but they only have the info I'm looking for on the C30 1 ton truck and not the van. Would the settings be the same?

Thank you for the Welcome to Web Forum

I plan to share as much as possible for Benefit of all
As I like to SAY
- SHARE your Unique Knowledge
- Lessons Learned
DONT take it to the Grave

QUESTIONS / Comments to follow
1. I am more familiar with Jeep repairs
That have Rubber Bushings

2. Noticed on this 1983 Chevrolet G30 2WD 5.7L engine auto Trans
The Control Arms ( Upper and Lower )
are attached to Frame of G30 with I believe they call a Taper NUT to Control Arm Shaft
This is the First time I have witnessed this Setup ... it appears to me a Much better design than the Rubber Bushing

3. Seeking anyone who may view this Post
DO I need to replace the Total Part ( Control Arm Shaft / Large Not / Rubber Boots ) ???

Respectfully

Its best to change the whole thing, cause if the ball is bad so may be the king pin. You can get a rebuild kit, but you will need a press or a oxy asel torch to burn them out.

Spend some time searchin the Chevy section here .... there are threads that already have pic's N all the info you will need.

You can also search YouTube for vids of what you getting ready to do.
