not attach welding ground clamps to u-bolts, springs
or axles except at designated weld points. These parts
should be protected from weld spatter.

It is essential that torque values be maintained to
insure proper operation of the suspension system. The
torque values of the suspension bolts and nuts must be

miles (1,600 km) and every three months thereafter.
Failure to do so may cause injury to personnel, damage
to equipment and will void the warranty.
