Rear hub torque specs

Can someone tell me the torque specs for the hub lock nuts on the rear hubs and the 8 bolts on the outside of the hub? I'm doing rear axle seals today...

Thanks guys,
Casey

Re: Rear hub torque specs

hub, turn nut on till its tight, probably about 60lbs, then back off about 1/4 turn, probably like 6-8 clicks.
the axleshafts. tight, but dont snap them. i hammer them with my GOOD IR on the low setting.

Re: Rear hub torque specs

i do not think that what he is talking about. the 8 bolts holding axle in. is what he is talking about, i belive. they do not get backed off 1/4 turn.

Re: Rear hub torque specs

he said hub nut AND axle nuts. i gave numbers for both. the hub nut is the criitical one, the axleshafts just need to be tight.

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.
