Axle retainer torque setting

I got my backing plates on and the axles installed this morning, now just need to tighten. I've looked around and don't see the torque specification for the four retainer nuts. Since they are the same size and thread, are they the same as the differential carrier 25-40 ft/lb?

Thanks, got them tightened up!
Now for the e-brake cables and bleed the rears, plus fill the differential. Maybe test drive tomorrow.
