2020 Silverado Step rail bolt torque

Postby Maxus [OP] » Mar 04 2021, 3:22am

Chevy dealer service dept. said torque to 13lbs. As this seems low and internet search indicated 30+lbs -older silverado and that chevy uses loctite red on all body bolts.

Does anyone know what the bracket and rail bolts should be torqued too. Also use loctite?

Just the side steps? Just snug them up by hand and call it done. It's not by any means a critical fastener. Just as long as it doesn't come loose your good. You can use thread lock if you wish. I'd use blue if you use anything, but it's not needed in my opinion. If anything I'd use antiseize to prevent corrosion since it's in a harsh area if your in the salt belt.
