: Torque Bolt Specs - 2005 STS V6

Hello, I am hoping someone out there is able to help me get torque wrench settings for a few bolts.
I recently had an embarrassing, rather annoying noise coming from under my 05 STS V6 RWD 64,000+ miles. It's a whooping/rubbing noise any speed over 25MPH which I discover makes a more consistent noise when I'm making a left turn or corner (noise tends to go away when I make right turns).

I took it to the dealer while I was getting an oil change and they said I have a bad left front wheel bearing/hub. They wanted $880 to replace 1 & $1450+ tax to replaced both. I opt to research cheaper alternative which I was able to order 2 from GM parts direct for waaaaay cheaper. I plan on installing it myself at a buddy's workshop.

I've been reading through these forums but I haven't come across a forum post for the specs on torque setting for the HUB bolts, brake caliper bolts, lug nuts, or anything around the suspension area. If someone could guide me into the right directions, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much, I really appreciate it. I will be tackling this project this coming weekend before 4th of July week so I can make a trip.
