    I am doing the disc brake conversion and was wondering what the torque specs were for the spindle nuts?

    I just did mine. I have the double nut setup with the inner adjusting nut and the outer lock nut. I have the manual and it says to tighten the inner nut to 50 lbs. then you spin it around a few times and back off the nut. Re-torque to 35 lbs. then back it off 1/4 turn. Then you put on the lock nut retainer and then the lock nut. You torque the lock nut to 65 lbs. and bend the lock nut retainer tabs into the slots to hold it in place.
