I did a search but couldn't find the answer. Posting on behalf of a friend:

I'm working on a 1999 Toyota Camry XLE 3.0 engine. I'm doing both CV Axles replacement. What is the axle nut torque? 217 ft lbs?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I meant to add that there is some controversy about using an impact wrench on that axle nut (even if using a torque limiting extension). There are those who believe you shouldn't impact that nut on. Just turn it with a manual wrench, then use a manual torque wrench for 217 ft. lbs. It's just an opinion I've read, so the choice is yours.
