Pfadt Coilover Troubleshooting

If you're not careful the shaft can crack on the threaded part.

You do know that nut gets torqued to only 65ft lbs.

Yes I understand that it only gets torque to 65lbs. That is why I stated in my post that I snugged it an additional 5 lbs to 70 lbs to see if it would help. So I take it you have to use a crows foot to torque it then?
