there is no torque spec.
from the factory they use a crush sleeve, so you crush it until the bearing preload is in spec.
carrier has to be out to check the pinion bearing preload with an inch/lb dial torque wrench.
guys will fudge it in but these axles have issues with the crush sleeve so its best to fix it properly
IMO to do it properly you pull the carrier and use a crush sleeve eliminator.
once it is setup with a spacer rather then a crush sleeve you can pound the pinion on with an impact and not worry about it.
