Axle nut torque

Well after dinner I'm heading out to the garage to pull the front wheel and put on the new brake rotors. Can anybody with a repair guide handy tell me what the torque spec is for the front axle nut?

Better yet, instead of just telling you how about you download this free manual and wooohooo you have a manual

Thumbs up

Table 1 on Page 387 of my Clymer Manual says 43 foot pounds for the front axle nut.

Front axle pinch bolts are 9.5 ft-lbs. and the brake disc bolts are 16.5 ft-lbs, in case you were wondering.

Good luck!
