Axle question 2016+

Does anyone know what the axle nut torque spec is for the rear on a 2016+ Grizz?

I bought a Cobra axle and also noticed that the cup that goes into the rear diff is not flat like the green OEM one, it's beveled on both ends. Is this ok?

I dont think many people has had to change axles yet on the 16's and newer. I would stick it in there and see if it slides in with out interference to where it stops. From the diameter VS the angle it looks like it should not be a problem.

Stock axles are 188ftlbs Cobra may spec a different torque for their products.

The long tapper helps avoid interference with chassis parts like the a-arm mounts and front knuckle tie rod arms .
I have axles with larger cv's on the rear my 13 -700 the left side inner boot does rub the a-arm mount. Never caused a problem but I do fear a small rock catching in there ripping the boot off.
