Just a cause your gun is rated at 150lb doesn't mean squat when it come to
tightening, most guns are rated in reverse and fwd has a lower rating.  Have
you ever tried to remove a reverse thread with a cheaper gun?  It probably
wont come off nearly as easy as you would expect.  If your gun and
compressor are strong enough you need to use torque sticks, they are the
impact version of a torque wrench, which will make sure you don't over
tighten it.

You really need to get a torque wrench, even the old bent beam type to make
sure that the wheels are on properly.  Also make sure to recheck them after
a few miles, Jim Strickland almost lost his front wheel cause he didn't
check it.

I picked up a set of metric impact sockets from Harbor Freight for $20 her
in town.

It included a 32mm socket.

My torque wrench goes to 150 lb-ft, so the front was easy.

I may hang 50 lbs on the end of a 5 foot cheater pipe to torque the back.

Those are the values that I have.

If I had to offer an educated guess, I'd say it's because the rear has much
heavier bearings and structure. It is also exposed to much greater forces
given that that's where the drive wheels are.

All I know for sure is that I spent $30.00 on a 32mm impact socket and I let
my impact gun do the talking for me.
