Yup, AutoZone's repair section on their website probably does. A Hayne's manual might, if you can trust that.

is that pinion nut setting rotational torque?

if you torque that nut with the sealant on the threads to only 20 inch lbs, the pinion bearings arent even gonna last long enough to go to the store and get beer after completing a job like this.

if you are going to post data figures for tightening torques, please clarify.

the 60 ft lbs on the carrier caps bolts is right though.

make sure the bolts are clean, and there isnt any gear lube in the holes, and lube the bolt threads with a spray of wd-40 or something.
