Depends on what size bolts your hub has.

The 1/2" bolts are 60 +/- 2 ft-lbs The 9/16" bolts are +/- 2 ft-lbs. The bolt dimensions are the bolt size not the head size.

Hope that helps :D

Cdp 60 +/- 2 ftlbs is what you want. Good luck. Sensenich's web site has install instructions in adobe reader if want to print them off.
