For those who have a service manual, can you share the front axle torque specifications? I saw on YouTube 35 lb-ft for the clamp bolt and 80 lb-ft for the axle bolt itself. Just trying to confirm. (I'll be removing my rims soon so I can get new tires mounted. In reality, I rarely use a torque wrench, instead relying on common sense, but it's good to know the spec.) Thanks.

The manual gives 15 ft-lb for the clamp bolt, 79.7 ft-lb for the axle. Pretty significant difference on that clamp bolt spec...
