you tighten the pinion nut until you have 25 in\lb drag and the pinion nut is correct. You must remember that it will probably take about 200 ft\lb to get to that point and crush the sleeve if that is the type of rear you are working on. So, to answer your question you do tighten the pinion nut and no there isn't a ft\lb torque figure for the pinion nut.
