Question Torque Speck on wheel axel

So long story short, I had to buy 20 new wheel studs and 20 new lug nuts for my 2005 convertible. I have brake pads in the front and drums in the rear, which actually all had to come out in order to take the hubs off to pound in the new studs.

My question would be, as I put the hubs back on the axle and screw the nut on, what is the torque speck for both the front and rear axles?

If anyone could enlighten me, I'd greatly appreciate it

hahaha, well thanks a lot man! I'll get a chance this weekend to finish up working on it. I'll just crank it with my gun and then see what the torque is at My pins are actually in good condition though, do I need to replace them?

Don't be "el cheapo", go to the hardware store and get new ones !!!!


Ohh, btw, I also crank them with my impact gun

EDIT: How you are going to drive to the store if you have it apart? LOL ...so, disregard my first answer
