Default Wheel bearing torque specs

I'm going to be working on swapping out my wheel bearings in a few hours here after a "good" night's sleep. I've searched and found some torque specs for what I'll be doing, but I just want to make sure these are accurate for my 95 Jimmy 4x4.

Wheel Hub and Bearing Assembly to Steering Knuckle Bolts 77 ft.lb
Wheel Speed Sensor to Wheel Hub and Bearing Assembly Bolt (4WD) 13 ft.lb
Drive axle to hub nut 103 ft.lb

That's what I found, in more than one place. Nothing specifies weather or not the specs are good for 95. Thanks in advance.

For your 95, you will want to torque the axle nut down to 133ftlbs (180Nm). The 97+ trucks are 103ftlbs (140Nm).

Well, I'll have to fix that one in the morning before I go to class I got them tightened to 103 ft. lb. That shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.

Well, the only real issue I had was getting the old assembly off. They both formed a rust bond with the plate behind them. I hit them with a hammer to somewhat rotate them. Watch out forthe sensors if you do that. You'll also need some extensions to get some of the bolts off for the wheel bearing. You'll have to turn the front wheels to get to one of the bolts on each side then turn them the other way to get to the other ones. All and all, it wasn't too difficult. My biggest issue was going back and fourth to Autozone to rent the tools I needed. You'll probably use a 36mm axle nut socket. You'll definitely need a breaker bar. My friend and I had to both stand on the breaker bar and jump to get the driver's side axle nut to loosen (pratically 400 pounds before jumping). Other than that, clean off the sensors before you put it back together. I don't really have much else to say about it. It only took me about 30 minutes to do each side once I finally got everything I needed. It was my first time replacing wheel bearings. It was easy I'd say.

I re-torqued the axle nuts this morning and I guess all is well with them now.
