There is no specific static torque for the spindle nut, as it's secured as part of adjusting the wheel bearings, as follows: With the rotor, bearings, etc. in place, tighten the nut to 12 ft-lbs while turning the rotor to seat the bearings, then back off the adjusting nut one flat and insert the cotter pin. Endplay for properly adjusted wheel bearings is .001"-.008".
