The corrected torque for the outside axle nut is 159 ftlbs 215(N.m) This should do the trick:)

Is the wheel bearing and hub 1 unit or can u replace just the bearing

Good Evening, these days it is a whole hub assembly and is held in by three bolts after you remove your caliper and rotor and then the nut off of the cv axle, then you can remove your hub assy bolts. One Note be sure to pay attention to the position of your ABS wire if your car has antilock brakes as to put it back in the same position. And keep safety in mind if you do it yourself.

How do you remove a front cv axle?

remove the tire, seperate the lower ball joint from the knuckle, remove the axle nut, push the axle out of the hub, use a prybar to gently pop the axe out of the transmission (make sure you have a drain pan under the trans to catch any fluid that may come out). When reinstalling make sure you tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. This will keep your wheel bearing from going bad.
