4. Position the new pinion nut.
5. Use (B) Companion Flange Holding Tool to hold the (A) rear axle companion flange while tightening the (C) pinion nut.
- Tighten the pinion nut, rotating the pinion occasionally to make sure the cone and roller bearings are seated properly. Take frequent pinion bearing torque preload readings until the original recorded preload reading is obtained by rotating the pinion with a Nm (inch-pound) torque wrench.
- If the original recorded preload is lower than specification, tighten to specification. If the preload is higher than specification, tighten to original reading as recorded.
6. Remove the Companion Flange Holding Tool.
7. Position the rear driveshaft and align the marks on the rear axle companion flange.
8. Install the four rear driveshaft bolts.
9. Install the rear disc brake rotors
