I have a question for you about the pinion nut of the front diffrential that

is behind the driveshaft . You seem more honest so her is my question

I replaced the front pinion seal and I read that the pinion nut nead to be marked but other mechanics told me to use a 1/2 impact wrench, other

told me to use 140 ft pound of force . I used impact wrench I am thinking

about the 140 footpound or just leave it . what do you think the proper

way for the nut because I know there is the crush sleeve if its too tight

it can do damage no ? if its too tight can do noise at high speed too ?
