Axle nut torque spec for '99 Altima

Hello all,
I need to replace the front axle on my sons '99 altima and I can't find a DIY on this anywhere. I guess all I really need is the torque spec for the axle nut. It's a manual if that matters.
Thanks in advance,
Randy

I use an impact. I don't pay attention to torque specs for axles, they usually aren't tight enough.

what you got against cordless impact guns there very nice and and if you pay the money for a lit ion one you never see power loss.

but ya it would be to much of a pain to torque that axle nut with out the help of a lift and one other person that knows what there doing

so just go to where you cant move the nut anymore and then go a lil bit more to be safe

202 ft-lbs

It's also sometimes listed 174 - 231 ft-lbs

Tightening it too tight can lead to premature bearing failure.
