This answer was rated:

Replacing the axle joint on a 2005 dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Diesel. At what torque do I tighten the wheel bearing nut to? Is there a degreed amount to back off like the old Dana 44s.

It is a two step process:

 

  • Install axle washer and nut. Tighten axle nut to 179 Nm (132 ft. lbs.) .
  • Rotate axle several 5 to 10 times to seat the wheel bearing.
  • Tighten axle nut to final torque of 356 Nm (263 ft. lbs.) .
  • Align nut to next cotter pin hole and install new cotter pin.
