Effing tight is the correct torque.

Trip you are the man. I cant believe it was that hard to get simple numbers from someone the chart was great but didnt just say ball joint and torque numbers. I'm surprised that they are different torque specs. Glad you told me. Where do you guys get these kinda answers if not here do you call the dealer. mines pretty good but dont know if they would tell me. Thanks again everyone for the help.

Don't do ball joints often, eh?

Check the instructions that come with what ever manufacturer is of the parts. Some companies use different torque values depending on the construction of the ball joints. And follow the torque sequence noted in the instructions as this can effect binding, causing return to center and wandering issues.
