Default Front wheel hub bearings torque specs

2005 Bonneville GXP, I will be replacing both front wheel hub bearings, can't find the axle nut torque specs, can find specs for SE & SLE but not the GXP!

I know 118 is the torque for an SE & SLE, I couldn't find any values for the GXP. I figured with the Northstar engine the torques might be slightly higher, Thanks

They all appear to be the same.

That reference shows the 2005 Seville to be the same spindle nut and torque of 118 as well. It'* shares the same platform/4.6L/4T80e as the GXP. A call to a Dealers GM Parts Dept. should confirm this for you.

I think Cadi changed the name & modle of Seville to STS in 05 and it was and still is a rear drive and is a streched version of the Pontiac G8 and the Chevy Camaro, but 118 lbs works for me, Thank you!

My bad, the last Seville was '04, but it was 4.6L FWD.
2004 Cadillac Seville specs, auto safety at Edmunds
It went RWD with the STS branding. I'd give GM a call to be safe on the torque. I'm sure they would tell you. Dont know why the torque specs are so widely different on GM'* spindle nuts. Some just over a hundred, some near 200.Quite the range there.
