there's no torque setting that you go by because there aftermarket!
the factory ones are riveted in so you won't find it any where.
but when i do them and do them . witch is alot. i go by the feel of my air gun. if you are using just hand tools then i would use a 3/8 ratchet and tighten it as much as you can with that set-up , then get a 1/2 set-up and turn another 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
if you need a number for a torque spec then depending on the grade bolt that came with the replacement ball joint. a 10mm bolt thats a 8.8 grade will only do 33 ft. lbs. before it will strech and then break. so no more than that! 8.8 is the most common for automotive grade hardware...
good luck man
