Look a little harder...It's gotta be in there if you've got a SM.
My 04' SM has a couple of pages that lists all the torque specs.

just get 'em tight , there is no real torque spec

I'd say about 35-40 pounds would be good if ya feel the need to fit a torque wrench on there

I would just turn them till they are tight. They have orings on them and you dont want to destroy them. I would go closer to the 22 then the 58 if you ever want to remove them again.
