I have been looking all over the internet but cant seem to find a solid answer. Looking for the torque specs on the front axle nuts for a 2014 focus SE. I have found specs for 2012, 2013, and 2015 but from what I've read, they are different specs. Had a wheel bearing go bad and am looking to replace in the next few days. I just dont want to over torque the axle nuts and have the bearing fail prematurely. Anybody out there got any idea?

I can absolutely positively tell you the bearings last FAR longer tighter than they do looser. That shows a misunderstanding of what is going on there. Most bearing early fails come from not being tight ENOUGH. These are not your mothers' '60s style wheel bearings at all.
