Replaced Upper Control Arm, Now A Question

I'm doing some work on a friend's 2004 explorer.

I replaced the upper control arm and need to know what torque specs the nuts circled in the picture below are. They were finger loose when I got it from the parts store. I have the torque specs for the other nuts already. Thanks for any help.

Since the upper control arm is considered an assembly, the factory service manual only lists the torque specification for the bolts that attach the assembly to the vehicle (150 Nm) and not the nuts that hold the bushings to the arm.

Thanks for the reply. I kind of figured the information wouldn't be easily accessible. I just sent the company an email on it this evening, I'll report back in-case this can help someone else.
