Need the torque specs for the driveaxle nut on a 2002 malibu
General Motors has released a new style drive axle nut for many 97-03 models. This new and improved nut is a torque prevailing style nut(basically it distributes the torque properly) for mor consistent clamp load on the wheel bearing. The new nut is silver in color and the old nut is usually black in color. They have also lowered the torque on most all of the models. The original torque for many of these vehicles was 284 FT/Lbs. THey have dropped this torque to 173 Ft/Lbs, then they dropped it again down to 112-118 Ft/Lbs.
