Rear End Upgrade

Jumped on the gear bandwagon. I payed for the JRE Rear End Upgrade Package with the LPE 3.91. I am going to send in my unit and have it rebuilt. Going to pull out the diff myself and reinstall the upgraded unit.
I can not find the torque specs anywhere for the control arms and such and the 2012 service manual is not out yet and a lot of stuff changed on the 12'. Any one have the specs?

I have the M6 and some people at work where asking if 1st would be a little low for the street and would 2nt gear be better to start in with the 3.91s. I told them I do not know but I know where to ask!

I just installed one of these myself last month. I've driven the car 4 times since. First gear is great....2nd gear is awesome! You won't be disappointed with the 3.91. When you first drive it, you will notice how the posi is tighter.

And 1st gear isn't that steep. I still use it to pull out with.
I'm very happy with the setup.
