Default 60k service Re-torque nuts and bolts of drive shaft

Does anyone here know exactly which nuts and bolts this is referring to? Once the holidays are past and all of our crazy long distance driving is done, my wife's RX will be at the 60k mark.

Of course, the owners manual says this should be done by an experienced technician so it doesn't provide any details about what bolts should be re-torqued or what the actual torque specs are. I'd really like to limit this service to the dealer doing the visual inspection and the brake fluid only.

get an oil change and ask the dealer to torque those nuts and bolts. They'll do it for free because it only takes 1 minute.

IIRC from the toyota nation forum the torque spec is 54 ft/lbs, the bolts should be at the end of the drive shaft where its bolted to the rear diff. Lexus maintenance says check every 5k. I wonder if loctite is a good idea

You can always go to a Toyota dealer to save a few bucks. Mechanically RX = Highlander.
