Anyone Know The Torque Specs For

I believe that is basic for all lug nuts on Ford cars 110 lbs . Put a drop of oil on the threads.

 

It's in your manual; be sure to re-torque after so many miles ... also in your manual. And don't apply any lubricant to the threads - the torque spec is for dry threads. Applying lube on the threads with the same amount torque will result in a greater net clamping force on the wheel and can over-stress the threads on the nut.
