How tight should the castle nuts on the outer tie rod ends be? I know they need to be tight, but didn't want to over tighten them. Is there a certain torque to put on them?

Thanks!

Outer tie-rod to spindle castle nuts: 39-54 ft-lbs (tighten to 39 ft-lbs and then tighten until cotter pin can be inserted).
Jam nut at inner end of outer tie-rod: 43-50 ft-lbs.
