D30 & D44 pinion nut torque with crush sleeve eliminator

I'm going to take a shot and guess 160-200 ft/lbs.??

That's what my service manual states for D44's on the Rubicon TJ. And they use the same size pinion nut.... Any objections?

I was told by ECGS to use 200 ft-lbs on my D44 with a crush sleeve eliminator.

I just did my d30/d44. The instructions that came with my solid pinion spacers said 125ft/lbs (nitro brand from just differentials). I thought that was low so I called, the lady went out to ask the tech and he said we they just impact gun it on. I went 160ftlbs.
