Default Front axle bolt torque

Does anyone know what it is?

Also wondering what the two control arm bolts are supposed to be torqued to as well as the ball joint.

Hi, axle bolt is 89 ft/lbs, then a further 60 degrees of rotation. Lower inner control arm bushes are 13 ft/lbs, then a further 120 degreees of rotation. The bushes must not be torqued with the suspension hanging. They must torqued with the car's weight on them. ( that is at normal sitting position ) If you don't have the car on a ramp type lift it's a bit difficult to get a torque wrench in there. You can use a jack to jack the wheels and control arms up to normal ride height or run the front up onto ramps. Can't remember torque for ball joint - Good'n'tight should do !

Default axle bolt tightening

The axles on the 1999 S70 are different from the previous years (S70's and 850's). The bolt that holds the axle shaft to the hub is a small bolt that goes into the axle at the end rather then the large nut that holds the shaft at the hub on the 850 and the 1998 S70. This bolt is not as tight as the large nut on the earlier models. I also noticed on my 1999 S70 that there was some lock-tight on the threads of the bolt. You should however tighten this bolt with the wheel on the car and the car sitting on the ground. This will give you the best results for proper torque settings and not damage the transmission as you tighten the bolt.

Default Front axle bolt torque

I finally got the repair manual on DVD:

Applies to cars of model years 99-00:
Clean the hub and the drive shaft splines.
Fold out and twist the spring strut and locate the drive shaft in the hub. Use an adjustable wrench to hold the control arm down.
Install a new drive shaft screw.
Tighten to 35 Nm. Angle-tighten 90°. Counterhold the brake disc with a screwdriver.
Note! Lubricate the threads and flange on the screw.

Now the ball joint:
Check that the groove on the ball joint spindle lines up with the screw hole in the wheel spindle.
Note! Press the ball joint upwards so that the conical top is visible above the screwed joint on the wheel spindle.
Use a new locknut in the wheel spindle screw.
Tighten to 50 Nm.

For some reason it does not show the bolts on the frame side of the control arm. It only tells you how to change the bushings.
