I know it's a personal preference thing, but...
I never torque the front axel or the rear axel nut more than 40ft/lbs...it's harder on the bearings. Besides, that's what pinch bolts and the cotter pin are for. In fact, ditch the cotter pin on the rear axel altogether... go to a home depot type hardware store and pick up a few diaper pins and use that instead
