Any Good references for Torque Spec on W140?

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

Is there a book or reference website with the information?

A VERY big thanks for posting the torque specs! I'm not sure why this information is so difficult to find.
