I found the spec on the hub bearing load it was for a d50ttb axle though. It said torque the lock nut to 50 ft lbs and back off 45 deg and install the lock washer and 2nd nut and torque to 150 ft lbs. Does this sound right to you guys?

That is correct. The trick is to rotate the hub/rotor assembly when torquing to 50 ft lbs though. You want to make sure that the hub is seated correctly when torquing in order to prevent premature bearing/seal failure.
