Front axle nut
175 ft lbs

Front Pinion Nut
Tighten pinion nut to 160 ft. lbs.

Rotate pinion shaft using an inch pound torque wrench. Rotating torque should be equal to the reading recorded during removal, plus an additional 5 in. lbs.

If rotating torque is low, tighten pinion shaft nut in 5 ft. lbs. increments until proper rotating torque is achieved.
