Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
I really hope you did not already remove it. When removing the nut to change a seal etc, you need to count exactly how many turns and part turns it took to remove it. When putting it back on you only turn it to exactly the same number of turns. The reason you do that is that inside the differential on the pinion shaft, there is a crush collar that is used to set the proper pinion depth. You can easily overtighten the nut and cause a huge problem with the gear settings that can only be corrected by using dial indicators to re-establish the correct settings (you'd need a new crush collar and would have to take the carrier and pinion gear out of the housing probably several times to get it right). That job is best left to an expert that has done the job numerous times.
