    Am in the process of replacing front discs on my 1980 (early 80) FJ40 and am planning on repacking front bearings while I am there. My manual has not yet come in so I would appreciate it if you guys could verify the wheel bearing torque procedure I found doing a search. I also need a couple extra torque settings. Here is the procedure I found...is it correct for my vehicle?

    1. With just the adjusting nut (inner nut) installed tighten to 43 foot pounds, turn hub 3 revolutions
    2. Repeat step 1
    3. Loosed the nut to hand tight, do not turn hub
    4. Tighten adjusting nut to 48 in-lbs, turn hub 3 revolutions
    5. Back off adjusting nut about 1 flat (60degrees) do not turn hub
    6. Put in lock washer and jam nut, tighten jam nut to 47 foot pounds, turn hub 3 revolutions

    **Question 1) when tightening jam nut do I need to hold the inner nut with a screwdriver to prevent it from turning as well?

    **Question 2) What is the torque spec for the bolts that hold the front rotor to hub?

    **Question 3) What is the torque spec for the front caliper bolts?

    **Question 4) What is the torque spec for wheel lugs

    **Question 5) When repacking bearings/hub, I always fill the hub with grease to the diameter of the inner wheen bearing....is this correct?

    thanks in advance...

    Not exactly how I do it but I suppose it works

    No, the lockwasher will keep it from turning, it's got a tab on it that fits the slot in the spindle

    29-39 ft/lbs

    55 - 75 ft/lbs
