Dana 30 axle nut

So changed a u-joint on a 2009 JKU last night, when putting it back together I google the torque spec for a Dana 30 axle nut and came up with 175 ft pounds. Today I look up JK specific torque specs and see it should be 100 ft pounds. How bad of a screw up is this? Possible damage?

I would loosen it and re-torque.. it's possible to damage the bearing.
