The axle nut torque is:
296 ft-lbs for 2WD
and
20 ft-lbs for 4WD

Make sure you use the correct torque for your application!

How to replace rear wheel bearing kia rio 2004


Over torque of the spindle locknut and improper grease packing are the main failures I would think. I did numerouse brake jobs on mine and allways used new seals cleaned out the bearings and repacked them dont forget to fill in the inside of the hub with more grease where needed. A new spindle lock nut is a must 75 cents at the dealer i had no luck finding them at the local parts stores. Remember new bearings and and races must be used press the races in properly. There is a special tool drag seal meter to use I dont have one so i would torque the nut to 20 FT LBS while turning the hub back and forth untill it was seated then back off the nut till loose and re torque the nut to 3-5 foot LBS stake it and have never had an issue hopefully this help you out

Spindle nut. Tighten the nut to 185 ft. lbs. (251 Nm). Inch pounds is not an option, this critical torque spec is FT lbs.

I have had re occuring problems with the driver side front hub bearing assembly. I have had to replace the hubs a total of 5 times in the last 65,000 miles. The bearings keep failing. Mechanic says that...


They use the Air Impact Gun to tighten the spindle nut,there by ruining every new bearing.
When it says torque to 160# ,it doesn't mean use an air tool
If you took all air tools away from professionals,everyone paying for repairs, would be better of.

I believe its 50 ft/lbs for the nut and the lock nut. If you're talking about a 4x4, if it's a 2wd and you mean the spindle nut, then I'll have to get back to you. Cheers.
