Does this seem correct for auto tran axles?
outer axle bolt WHT005437 ( M16x1.5x70) 70Nm (~52 ft/lb) +90 deg TTY
inner cv to transmission 6x N90991002 ( M10x23mm) 70Nm ( 52 ft/lb)

Be sure to have some heavy-duty tools at your disposal to get to that 200Nm+180° - that's a lot of torque. It's important to get to that torque, too, because if you come up short, you're most likely going to get some vibration issues at speed, leading to replacing the bearing and probably a set of tires.

I had to jump up and down on my ¾" socket drive to get that M18 XZN all the way around, after the ½" breaker bar blew apart.

70nm +90 sounds way easier :D lol
