Any Good references for Torque Spec on W140?

4390 4
I'm preparing to perform front suspension work on my w140. I'm however having trouble locating information about torque specs.

I subscribe to Alldata, but there are no torque specs for front suspension parts.

upper control arms
lower control arm
ball joint
etc.....

Is there a book or reference website with the information?

Thanks,

Russell
