Rear Wheel Hub Nut Size & Torque Sign In

I need to remove the rear wheel hub on a 2000 dodge neon. I thought it would be like the last car i worked on where it just has a finger tight nut and a cotter pin to hold it on, but it turns out dodge has the hub and bearing as one assembly. I was wondering what size nut holds it on? and what is the torque specs for when i reninstall it?

Thanks

Jim; The torque spec is 160 ft.lbs. I couldn't find out what size socket you'll need, though. Sorry.
