    What size stud do you have, or, what year front axle are you working on?

    I check mine prior to every wheelin trip, and for a hard/long event (like BHCC) I checked them every night. Yes, I have a torque wrench that travels with me...

    The Pre-79 knuckle studs tourque value is 40-60 ft. lbs.

    And,

    As Brian pointed out, check these often, as they will get loose on you, and if you do not catch it, you may end up breaking the studs or the knuckle...


    Good luck!
