You mean the spindle nut on the front hubs? No specific torque, tighten it while spinning the rotor as tight as you can get it with a 3/8" drive ratchet, then stop spinning the rotor, back it off 1/4 turn, then finger tighten it. Put the retainer on with the cotter pin holes lined up and insert a new cotter pin.
