  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2.  
  3. Remove the rear wheels.
  4.  
  5. Loosen the spindle nut.
  6.  
  7. Torque the nut to 108-145 ft. lbs. (150-200 Nm). Check for correct bearing end-play by placing a dial indicator on the hub surface and moving the hub outward. Note the movement of the gauge and compare it to the desired reading of 0.008 in. (0.2mm) or less. If end-play exceeds the desired reading, retighten the rear hub bearing nut and recheck the end-play. If the reading is still excessive, replace the hub unit.
  8.  
  9. If end-play is correct, check the starting torque by attaching a spring balance to the hub lug bolts and pulling at a 90 degree angle while noting the required force to turn the hub. If the force required is above the desired reading of 5 lbs. (2.3 kg) or less, loosen the nut and again tighten to the desired torque. Recheck the starting torque. If the torque is still above the desired reading, replace the rear bearings.
