Hub assembly axle nut torque.

Today I replaced both my front hub bearings. I have been chasing my tail for the torque settings all day. I drove home earlier and I have a very loud vibration from front left. I think I may have torqued wrong (135 NM). Can someone please help it's a 2006 3.0 crd. Both hubs are brand new.

Re: Hub assembly axle nut torque.

Ok thanks, so I still have the vibration, about 35mph. I've regressed the sway bar bush'. I've stripped and checked the hub assembly twice. Changed the tyre. Had two mechanics look at and they can't find anything wrong. No noise when shifting. No noise in Low range. Vibration comes when left side is loaded???, could I have a bad hub from new?, really need help as long trip planned!!

Re: Hub assembly axle nut torque.

Does the vibration change as you turn corners? Usually if a wheel bearing/hub, it will alter sound as the bearing is loaded an unloaded.

Re: Hub assembly axle nut torque.

Loading up the bearing will make more noise. If the noise was not there before that is likely the problem. Never done them on a Jeep, but have on other cars.... making sure to use generous amounts of grease and using fingers to make sure to get lube pressed into all rollers, working it around. Could be bad parts, did you use OEM ?

Hub bearings were cheap nasty junk. Replaced today with OEM from a breakers ( got lucky, donor vehicle had only done 38k) and my truck is back to her best, for now!!😉
