    I had to replace a knuckle stud when I was doing the front axle service. How tight should I torque the new stud?

    Same thing happen to me just recently. The FSM didn't say what to torque to it so I went as tight as I could.

    If it is the new type with the torxe head, I am sure its very close to 82lb's foot, or is that foot lb's...I done mine at that and also glued them in with liquid metal.
