Don't worry about torquing them down to spec as it will be almost impossible to get the torque wrench in there.

Tighten them until you feel comfortable - you can judge how tight they need to be by how tight they were when you took them off. just don't over tighten to break the bolt.

Also, don't forget. you will need to retighten everything after few hundred miles. Just to make sure nothing became lose.
