Testimonial: "The info on the torgue specs was very helpful. I couldn't find it anywhere. Thanks a bunch!"
Hub bolts are around 65-70 foot pounds, axle nut is about 120-130 ft pounds. These are not super-critical. Many at shops are installed using air guns and work just fine. Your main objective is to not have them come loose. If axle nut has a cotter pin, never back off on nut to install. always tighten to get holes for pin aligned.

Those values and most everything else you need for DIY work are contained in the Haynes manual for your vehicle.
We have one with each of our vehicles and not only give you the info needed to do repairs yourself but also get an idea of how much work a specific repair should (or shouldn't) cost.

You can also buy these from auto parts stores for a few dollars less and sometimes on eBay for even less.
