Thanks for the help Adam.  I am going to test the theory of no "dumb" questions Smile. I took a picture of the rear end and looked at the torque specs you sent me.  I want to make sure that I am identifying the correct bolts.  Can you take a look at the picture and let me know if I have it right?  Much Appreciated!

Except for "E", all looks correct. What you have labeled as "E" appears to be the outer strut("support rod") bolt, which would be torqued the same as "D". 
The actual "spindle to hub & bearing" fastener is the nut that holds the axle into the hub assy...letter "L" in this pic.
