Default Rubicon Express 1660 Track Bar

So recently picked up one of these as it was local and a good price but my issue is the installation of the track bar. As a precursor I have sent an email to RE and I have not heard back and the instructions don't say anything.

The RE1660 uses a spherical joint at the frame to allow for movement and the install consists of a 1/2" bolt with a prevailing torque lock nut. Now nothing says how much I should torque this down to, so is it just a do it till its snug and call it a day? Is there a torque value?

Would it be better to use a normal bolt and washer with locktite and cinch it down to like 120-150 ft/bs?

THoughts.
