Here goes hope this helps use Loctite where you can...

Upper A arms allen cap screws or bolts 60ft.lbs
any 3/8 bolts 10ft.lbs
Rack brackets 8 bolts that hold that together Lotite and 60ft.lbs
1/2 bolts with nylocs 60ft.lbs
Spindle and A arm Castellated nut Loctite 70ft.lbs and use cotter pins
Bolts that go to the arm Loctite and 50ft.lbs
Any 3/8 bolt connecting the steering 30ft.lbs and Loctite

Thats the best I can come up with the one thing with front end parts Don't over torque the bolts thats when they fail..Use Loctite and cotter pins where they are needed,,Good Luck Grin  Cool
