I went out and bought a damm toyota manual to get some torque specs for the axles I am puttin in my sammy and the specs I need arent in there or I am blind. Does anyone know what the 4 nuts that hold down the arms are supposed to be torqued to, and what about the lower cap on the bottom of the knuckle? Thanks! <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">

I completely rebuilt the axle, so should it be pretty tight when I am turning the hubs back and forth? Thanks for the torque specs.

the knuckle bearin preload is like 12-16 INCH LBS that is with just the knuckle on the axle house, no axles felts or any other shit, totally assembled the drag feels like about like if you jacked the rear whells up and turned the pinion flange. or slighltyy more than that

I do not know where you got those numbers from but my Toyota Factory Service Manual calls for 6.6-13.2 pulling force poundsw when measured with a spring gauge. This is from the 84 FSM. the bigger the tires the closer I go to the high side.

Only problem now is that I have the axle completely assembled, shitty damm! Should I take it all back apart, or just unbolt the felts and add a couple pounds to that spec?

Probably have to slip a shim or two under the top and bottom to loosen up the knuckle bearings a bit:

Axle rebuild info.

What does a dial inch pound torque meter look like? How much is it and what else will work to check the knuckle specs?
