So doing a whole control arm/strut change out on the 2016 SXT Blacktop Edition 130,000 mi. The best I found was to remove the entire knuckle to get the strut out. Question is, @ what torque do the drive axle nuts need to be when all done and replaced. Also, are there any other torque specs I should be aware of, and should I just go ahead and replace the hubs as well since it's all apart anyway?

Yes, replace hub bearings while it's all apart.

No need for red loctite.

I reused my axle nuts when I changed the bearings, that was like 4 years ago, no issues with them. never used locktight on a caliper bolt either, no issues.
I did change the wheel bolts because the factory ones swelled and were a real pain to get off.
