From my 1999 FSM, the retaining nut is torqued to 120 ft. lbs. +/- 10 ft. lbs. It also says that a new nut must be used each time..saying it is a "prevailing" torque nut and can not be re-used. Whatever prevailing means? And just in case you ever do a rear hub the torque on that is 124 ft. lbs.
FLASH UPDATE!! The above torque specs are listed in the assembly procedures in the text. There is a caution paragraph listed in bold font that says not to exceed 120 ft. lbs. I then looked at the Front Suspension Fastener Torque Spec table on the last page of the chapter and it says 135 ft. lbs. for the front stub axle nut!! This is a genuine DC 1999 FSM !!
I then look at my D/C 2000 FSM and it has the same numbers!! I then go to the D/C 2001 FSM. The Torque Specification table at the front of the chapter has 105 ft. lbs. and the text in the assembly also says 105 ft. lbs. Don't know what to say on the ones for your year but the later ones are 105. They all say to use a new nut each time though.
