Twist them down by hand and about a 3/4 turn should do the trick.

If you have the box the studs came in then it should be on it if I remember right or it should be on a piece of paper on the inside.

Tighten the nuts to 80 ft. lbs IN THREE EQUAL STEPS. Example, torque to 25 ft lbs, then, 50 ft lbs, then 80 ft lbs.
