Wheel Lug Nut Torque Specifications
WARNING   WARNING:  When you install a wheel, always remove any corrosion, dirt or foreign materials present on the mounting surfaces of the wheel or the surface of the wheel hub, brake drum or brake disc that contacts the wheel. Make sure to secure any fasteners that attach the rotor to the hub so they do not interfere with the mounting surfaces of the wheel. Installing wheels without correct metal-to-metal contact at the wheel mounting surfaces can cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the wheel to come off while your vehicle is in motion, resulting in loss of vehicle control, personal injury or death.

M14 x 1.5   150 lb.ft (204 Nm)

1Torque specifications are for nut and bolt threads free of dirt and rust. Use only Ford recommended replacement fasteners.
On vehicles equipped with single rear wheels, retighten the lug nuts to the specified torque at 100 mi (160 km) after any wheel disturbance, such as tire rotation, changing a flat tire, or wheel removal.
On vehicles equipped with dual rear wheels, retighten the wheel lug nuts to the specified torque at 100 mi (160 km), and again at 500 mi (800 km) of new vehicle operation and after any wheel disturbance, such as tire rotation, changing a flat tire, or wheel removal.
It is important to follow the proper wheel mounting and lug nut torque procedures.
