    Been googling and found this...

    >>DON'T torque this!! tighten the nut while spinng the rotor, then back off until it is free, then tighten it down until it seats tight, then turn another 1/8" tighter, that is it, any tighter u burn up the the wheel bearings.

    Comments?
    Thanks!!

    that procedure is for the old replacable bearings. the hub/bearing assemblies just tighten down [supposed to use new nut].
