on my  86 4kcsq "project".  In the process of reinstalling the
rear drive shafts I noticed that Bentley specs for the front inner
CV joint bolts is 33 ft/lbs and the rear inner CV joint bolts is
58 ft/lbs.  The bolts are the same size front and read (8mm triple
square)  Is this correct or have I found an error?


84 & 85 use 8mm and 10mm bolts this could account for the difference..86 and
later use 8mm only...so go with the 33ft/lbs spec
