Are you using an inch drive?i did my disks yesterday before putting my new axle on,i had a massive inch drive wrench and a 2.4m length of heavy tube.
The bearings have a spacer tube between them so i don't think you can over tighten them so to speak, just remember that you are tightening them to roughly the same amount of force as it takes to remove them, i used the heavy bar and just had to lean on the nut to get it off. without the bar i would have been jumping on it and had problems.
Sorry i don't have the torque settings but it is easy to do, you need to take the abs ring off to get the disk off also because the Torx bolts won't come out without hitting the abs ring,i used the claw hammer with old disk in a vice to work the ring off.

Lol my socket come in 1 in drive, the nut holding things on is a nylock type, the force you will probably need is possibly more than a standard torque wrench, if you can get enough leverage on it that you aren't jumping on the breaker bar i.e the long tube allows you to lean on it.otherwise i suggest you get the torque settings after all lol.as i said it needs to be as tight maybe a minute amount tighter than it is to take it off.
