is this insane to anybody else?? the fact that an owner would need to "tighten their axle nut" is a big deal. axle nuts don't just come loose. literally have NEVER had this happen on any vehicle I have owned

whatever the case, double check the torque value and use a torque wrench. I think it's 180ft lbs, but not sure. if you don't have a torque wrench, you could prob toss some independent mechanic 20$ for them to do it for you.

tbh, I would buy a new nut as well. axle nuts are generally one time use because they stretch as you torque them
