Default Torque specs for front wheel install??

I moved in April and my garage is still a disaster and need to install my wheel with new tire. Of course I can't seem to locate my manual...:banghead:

Could someone tell me the torque specs for the brake caliper bolts, axle cap bolts and axle bolt? This is for a 2009. Do you recommend blue loctite on these bolts?

Much appreciated!

A little blue loctite is always a good idea IMO.

Front Axle Cone Nut = 60-65 ft-lbs.
Front Axel Holder Nuts = 132-180 in-lbs

Can't remember the torque specs on the calipers bolts and not where I can verify that at the moment.

My 2010 manual is showing:

28-38 ft lbs for the caliper mounting bolt. Should be the same for your 09!
