D44 Ring gear bolts

I'm instaling a aussie locker in my D44 rear axle, and ran into a snag with torking the ring gear blots.

I have serched on line and for some reason, I'm reading some guys tork em at 80-90 ft lbs, and at the same time, someone els doing the same install on the same rearend will tell ya it's 55-60 lbs?

I was wondering if someone could tell me what the proper tork spec should be for ring gear bolts on a D44?

The jeep is a 87 xj 3.54 gears

Re: D44 Ring gear bolts

I just looked in my Yukon install guide, and it says 55 ft/lbs for the R.G. bolts, and 60 ft/lbs for the caps.
