what would you torque them too

I just installed my new bolt in Ball joints. The company (PST) won't give torque specs for the 4 bolts that hold the ball in. What would you guys torque them too?

Standard dry torque for a G8 1/4"-28 is 13.7 ft-lb. 5/16"-24 is 27.2 ft-lb.

Re: what would you torque them too

Looking at some paperwok I have states "10 ft.lb. w/ nuts facing up" and goes on to say 60ft.lb. for the balljoint nut. (remember if the holes don't line up for the cotterpin, tighten till they do.... never loosen to fit.
