67 camaro 350 4 speed, 8.5" 10 bolt, multi leaf, non-staggered. Does anyone know what I should torque the u-bolt nuts under the lower rear shock mount plates? OR is there some other technique or procedure that I should follow when installing all new parts, pads, bushings, etc? Thanks.

I just installed hotchkis leaf springs with new u bolts and from what i remember there was different torque specs based on the size of bolt. I believe that the 9/16" that I have were set for 90 lbf-ft, but not sure. I would also recommend you check them again after you have driven it. Just an fyi, when you torque down a bolt or fastener almost 90% of the measurement is overcoming friction.
