<FONT COLOR="Red"> I torque the first to 40-45 lbs, then turn the rotor around 4 or 5 times (to squeeze out excess grease). Then I back the nut off and re-torque it to whatever it takes (usually about 12 lbs on my truck) to acheive 6 lbs of bearing pre-load (using my trusty fishing scale). Then I instal the tab lock washer and tighten the outter nut reasonable and then set the tabs on the washer.</FONT c>
