Default Good Source for Gear Setup Specs.

Is there any books or links to the torque specs and preloads for ring and pinion installs. I've been looking at several links with varying specs, from Randy's(Yukon), chiltons, other sites for example the dana site. For the most part they all seem to be pretty different and the specs on Randy's seem to be on the low side for example on the Dana 44 front of a dodge ram. I am just wondering if there is just a catalog or chart that is top dog when it comes these specs?

The little booklet you get with a set of yukon gears from randy's is pretty handy. All the specs are on the back cover and I always seem to have 3 or 4 of those laying around.

If you're using OEM parts, then OEM specs should be used. I would never torque a ring gear bolt to OEM spec when using an aftermarket gear.
