New Rear Leaf Spring Brackets & Upper Shock Mounts - Torque Specs

I am replacing my rear leaf spring shackles and will be bolting them on, but I'm not sure what the torque specs are for the hanger to the frame, the hanger to the shackle, and for the leaf spring bushing bolt?

Also replacing the rear upper shock mounts since I have the bed off - how much should those be torque to the frame?

Torque specs on parts like those aren't as critical as others may be. (Especially the bracket to frame bolts). When I did my rear hangers and shackles I went with the "good and right" method. (18" breaker bar and a 12" cheater haha).

Hopefully someone else will chime in with the actual numbers.
