F-250 axle nut torque spec

ok, so now that I botched the title...I need the torque spec for the ratcheting 'nut' that is on the end of the axle. The one that requires the special axle socket...I don't know its proper name.

It's for the rear axle on my 2000 F250

Any and all help is much appreciated!!

-Micah

Answer varies on axle/rear end?

Tighten to 60 ft-lb (the nut will ratchet as you tighten), then for new bearings, ratchet back (loosen) five teeth or notches (1/8 turn) on the hub nut. You have to be able to feel the five notches. For used bearings, turn back seven notches (1/6 turn), again making sure you feel the notches while turning.
