After a couple of heat/cool cycles check the torque again and again after a few miles. No need to 'see a turn' on the nuts. Just assure they are still at the the torque value you set them to originally.
Great.... The torque I use reads in pounds...converting it to inch's it should be 120 IP = 10LBs.... 140 IP = 11.6 LBs......Max at 150IP = 12.5 LBs...
