Shifter linkage torque value.

The 2015 shop manual says:

18-22 ft/lbs for shift lever pinch bolts heel and toe levers,
and 18-22 ft/lbs for the transmission lever pinch bolt.
Seems reasonable.

However, the front shift lever pinch bolt is only listed at 90-110 INCH/lbs. Lots of us have had trouble with these coming loose, especially the front shift lever. Seems mighty low for such a troublesome fastener. Is this a misprint?
