front axle nut torque specs?

I have a 2006 2wd f-150. The right front wheel bearing went out and I just replaced the rotor assembly. Since it has the sealed bearings pressed into the rotor and upon removal I realized that the nut was much much tighter than I thought it should be, I want to know the correct torque setting for putting it back on. The part is not cheap and the Ford dealership won't tell me. Does any one here know or have a manual?

Thanks,
Chris

Oh well, I appreciated your response. I'm really becoming irritated with the latest developments in technology. Maybe I'm just getting old.

Thanks again,
Chris

It is pretty high for a 2wd.

You're not re-using the spindle nut, are you? It's a one use item.
