Re: Rear hub torque specs
Per manual, tighten bearings to 55-65ft/lbs at the big nuts, then back them off 1/8 turn (which equals five clicks - easy to gauge even if you can't hear them, as there are 8 axle bolts, thus 1/8 turn), then after you set her down on the ground, tighten the axle bolts to 60-80 ft/lbs. Wheels should be 140 ft/lbs.
