Caliper bolts tq value is 21 ft lbs/26nm. Cal bracket bolts tq value is 52 ft lbs /70nm. Wheel lug tq value is 95 -100 ft lbs/ 129/136 nm. Also might want to take a fine wire brush to the caliper bolts and the bracket bolts and apply a small amount of thread locker compound to the cleaned bolt threads prior to tightening them down.

Well, if there is such a thing as "too loose" it also stands to reason that "too tight" might also be applicable here. For example if you tightened the wheel lug nuts to 45 ft lbs , you can be sure that they will come off while driving. Or if you tightened the same wheel lugs to around 145 ft lbs, expect the front brake rotors to warp in few hundred miles of use.
So, it matters.
