12 ft lbs...BUT it is not a TQ and walk away deal.

TQ to 12 ft lbs while spinning the hub, back off till lose and by finger tighten nut so it lines up with hole for cotter pin

end play should be .001-.005 if you really want to check it that way after install. I have always just done it by feel after initial TQ, back off and then finger tight to the closest slot so the cotter pin goes through hole

I'm working on the driver side rear right now. Frozen slides I suspect.
