Torque Specs

I'd like to start a list of different torque specs for common jobs. If anyone knows, or has a Ford tech manual...post 'em up! You know we'll all eventually need them!

Wheels:
Lugnuts -

Brakes:
Caliper bolts -
Carrier bolts-

Engine:
Oil drain plug -
Spark plugs -
Oil pan -

Suspension :
Spring cup(top) -
Control arm bolts -
Balljoint -
U-bolts(nuts)-
Spring shackle -

Drivetrain:
Diff cover:
Front-
Rear-
Transmission pan -

This is obviously just a basic list, with room for expansion. Only post figures you know are 100% correct, and I'll edit as needed. If this goes well, maybe we can put together an FAQ or a Quick Reference Guide....add this to it and make it a sticky at the top of the page or in the tech section.

Not sure if this was answered above and I just don't know the correct terminology, but do you have the torque specs for the rear leaf springs and shackles?

This includes the rear shackle to frame bolt? Basically the 3 bolts that hold the leaf to the frame are the same? Been having a issue with mine and suspect the bolts are not torqued as much as they should be.
