those are for new bolts,it is less for old bolts,especially the soft stub axle bolts.Jess(jbbvw) broke the head off a stub axle bolt while tightening it with a 1/4" ratchet while helping to fix a broken stub on my car at Evans Creek.

 I watched this.  He was not torquing hard on it at all.  it just snapped off.  Just the head, the shoulder stayed in and the stub stayed in......But it will be a bitch to get out gotta wait till it snaps.
