I am replacing the right front whell bearing assembly on my 2006 F-150 4x4 (100,000 miles on it). I purchased the wheel bearing assembly from my local parts store and they tell me that it is important to torque the axle nut to the correct specs. However, there computer program did not have that information. Told me I would have to get from my Ford dealer, however they are closed today.
Expert:  Glenn replied 5 years ago.

OK wheel end nut would be your answer.. 20 foot pounds.. Look at chart I posted after you viewed the answer. 9 foot punds on the 3 bolts holding it in [wheel bearing]
