Mustang II IFS Torque specifications

I am installing a chassis engineering Mustang II IFS kit in my 37 chevy sedan, and I haven't been able to locate the specifications for torquing all the bolts. There kit just said use the Ford specifications. Not real happy with the quality control of the parts they produce, but that is another discussion.
I tried my local Ford dealer (no help, they disposed of all their old manuals), local library for old Haines manuals ( the ones I found didn't cover Mustangs), and I spent two hours searching the internet with no luck.
I torqued the ball joints to 70 ft/lbs. Is this close, or do they need to be tighter? Does any one have specs. for the whole front end? I am a complete novice and this is my first attempt at building up a car from a complete tear down.
