The rear nut is unlike most japanese cars where it must be torqued t ensure the bearing isnt too tight or loose. a 30mm socket on a 1inch air gun is needed to loosen and tighten the nut. you will lso need a circlip plies and a pnematic press to push out the bearing towards the circlip end. when the old bearing is out use it on top of the ne one and press it in until you feel resistance. replace the circlip and refit hub. retighten the nut. job done

I have a 2006 4runner and it has a rather loud whine coming from the rear end, is it the wheel bearings or does the diff need work ie bearings?

My 2002 Sequoia had that ***** whine too.
It ended up being rear wheel bearings.

Not to rule out ring and pinion gears in the rear end, I hope it ends up just being the bearings for you.

How do u know rear wheel bearings are bad

As wheel bearings wear, clearances will no longer be tight. This "loosening" up of the part, will often times make an audible whine. The whine will be proportional to your vehicle speed.

Torque setings

if it is a solid bearing do it up as tight as you can.if it is a tapered bearing do it up untill the nut is touching the bearing check the hub for play if you have got play do the nut up a bit more until the play is gone in the hub.make sure you do not over tighten the bearing or the wheel will not turn freely.the wheel needs to spin with no drag.

Whineing nosie from rear

is it front or rear wheel drive? i believe its front. well i would say you have a wheel bearing or brake problem. jack up the car and hold wheel top and bottom and see if you can rock it, wheel bearing.
if its brake you will hear it when you spin the wheel.
