Caliper bolt torqure specs

I need the caliper torque numbers for a 2005 f150 6 lug. I'm replacing my brakes(rotors and pads) this weekend, is there anything I need to know?

According to my manual.......

If you are talking about bolts that hold front caliper mount bracket to knuckle.. pre-2009 are 148 lbft.

If you are talking about the caliper mounting pins, then... Pre-2007 are 47 lbft

The rear pins are... 22 lbft for all years

1. Make sure all mating surfaces are cleaned w/ light grease film (I use NeverSieze) on them.
2. Make sure the fulcrum actuator for the rear e-brake is clean, moves free and is lubricated.
3. Be sure e-brake is adjusted correctly to prevent dragging.

Other than item #2 and 3, just a std disc brake job, like every other vehicle.

Did mine a couple of weeks ago and like night and day. E-brake even works now....

Same question...but for 2009-2011? Are they still 13mm and 18mm bolts? The torques for the bolts involved in a rotor pad swap would be greatly appreciated.
