In another post i mentioned that i only finished my front end suspension with the trd shocks and springs. Im had trouble torqueing the bottom mount at 177 feet-lb. I did them at least at 130 feet-lb. How do i finish torqueing it? im a little skinny man and 130 is all i can do.

Is driving with just the front suspension bad? Im gonna do the back half in a day or two. thanks

Get a hollow pipe that can fit around the end of the torque wrench and that will help you get more leverage. Its called a cheater pipe.

But if it's a click type torque wrench, it will not be the right torque. Your hand placement on the wrench affects the measured torque, and grabbing the wrench in the wrong place renders the entire operation pointless.

Adding a cheater bar would require some recalculation of the torque values based on the length of the extension. It's usually easier just to get a bigger person to work the wrench properly.
