Wheel Bearing Torque Specs
Just got my new wheel bearing/hub and just curious what it should be torqued to?

Re: Wheel Bearing Torque Specs
According to the service manual 175 ft/lbs

(1) Thoroughly clean the axle shaft and apply a
thin film of Mopar Wheel Bearing Grease or equivalent
to the shaft splines, seal contact surface and hub
(2) Install brake rotor shield to the knuckle.
(3) Install hub bearing and axle shaft assembly or
axle shaft into the housing and differential side
gears. Avoid damaging the axle shaft oil seals in the
axle housing.
(4) Install the hub bearing.
(5) Install hub bearing bolts and tighten to 102
Nm (75 ft. lbs.).
(6) Install axle hub washer and nut and tighten
nut to 237 Nm (175 ft. lbs.). Install the nut retainer
and a new cotter pin.
(7) Install ABS wheel speed sensor, brake rotor
and caliper.
(8) Install the wheel and tire assembly.
(9) Remove support and lower the vehicle.

Re: Wheel Bearing Torque Specs
Not to jack your thread but StephenE you have under your car mods you have the stainless steel brake lines. How do you like them, Did you notice any improvement, and how much did they cost?
