What it might be is what it is, you will need to measure it and write it down, then when you reassemble it, put it back to where it was. The easy way is to mark the nut and the end of the shaft (center punch) and put the nut where it was. Should be 15-30 inch pounds.

SOURCE: I need the torque specs
The pinion nut does not have a torque spec. as in how tight the nut is. The amount of torque is measured in bearing preload. You will need a "torque to rotate" torque wrench. If you are using new bearings the torque spec. is 15-25 in. lbs. If you are using your old bearings the torque spec. is 10-20 in. lbs to rotate. To measure this you will need to tighten the nut in small increments then use the torque to rotate wrench to turn the pinion without the carrier/ ring gear installed. Repeat until desired torque is reached.
