36MM axle nut torque specs?

I am about to change my drive-axle and wanted to know if the 36MM axle nut needs to be torqued? If so, what are the specs?

Thanks. Sounds like where's! If the manual doesn't have it, then where can one find it?

The axle nut torque spec is critical. It's 181lbs. Preload on the bearing is important. If not done proper, bearing damage can occur.
