Buick Lucerne 2006 Cx Looking for torque specs for installing front end struts

I have a Buick Lucerne Cx 2006 with 3.8 Litre Engine.

I am looking to replace the two front end struts.

There are 3 bolts on the top when you look into the engine bay and 2 bottom bolts on the bottom near the wheels.

Would anyone here know the torque specs for these bolts?

Any help much appreciated.

From the 06 Master Service Manual
Strut to mount bolts 37 ft/lb
Strut to knuckle nuts 131 ft/lbs *
* If you have not already removed them, the two strut to knuckle bolts have splines and do not turn out. You need to drive them out. The torque shown is for the nuts.
