Remove/Install the front Diff.

I have a Haynes for 1993-2005 Rangers which is pretty much worthless. Will one of you please look up the torque values for the front diff as follows?

Bolts that hold the D35 to the frame?

Main bearing caps that retain the ring gear/carrier?

Ring gear bolts to carrier?

Bearing cap bolts = 45 lb-ft
Ring gear bolts = 80 lb-ft
Axle to frame bolts = 49 lb-ft
