Leaf Springs U Joint: 110 Ft/lbs
Leaf Spring Shackles: 125 Ft/lbs
Leaf Spring Eye Pivot Bolt: 125 Ft/lbs

Upper Ball Joint Nut: 70 Ft/lbs
Lower Ball Joint Nut: 95 Ft/lbs
Tie Rod: 55 Ft/lbs
Axle Nut: 185 Ft/lbs

Shock Bolt Upper: 45 Ft/lbs
Lower Bolt at Control Arm: 155 Ft/lbs

If you need any more torque specs for your vehicle you can go to AutoZone, create/login with an account, then go to Repair Help tab and find information there. It's the same information you'd find in a Chilton/Haynes Guide.

Thank so much for these numbers, prefer setting things up to spec instead of just tightening things up. And thanks for the tip on where I can find more.
