Question about 1988 Ford Bronco II
There is no set torque for a pinion nut, it is turned until the crush sleeve behind it exerts the correct "preload" on the front Pinion bearing. The crush sleeve must be replaced when the seal is replaced.

Most pinion nuts don't have a published torque spec. they are to be tightened until the pinion requires a specified torque to spin with the wheels and brake drums removed. Often times, when a rebuild is not performed, it should be torqued to the same preload as before the work. autozone.com has alot of good repair info and diagrams.
