front brake caliper banjo bolt torque

Any one have the torque spec on the banjo bolts for the front brake calipers?
I figured i would ask, I seem to like to tighten things a bit too much.
I have a 1/4 inch torque wrench for inch pounds and a 3/8 wrench too.
thx

not sure exactly what you mean by banjo bolts, but the caliper mounting bolts are 42 ft/lb. The caliper bracket bolts are 166 ft/lbs for the front and 128 for the rear. These are the specs for 99-04's. This info is from my chilton manual.

thx I was referring to the bolt that bolts the brake line to the caliper. This bolt uses 2 brass washers to seal it. The bolt has a hole thru it to allow fluid to travel. This is a banjo bolt. I was just wondering how much to tighten one?

I can't seem to locate my manual ATM, but I believe 25 ft/lbs was what SSBC specified for the aluminum calipers. I would imagine it would be the same for stock ones too.
