Wheel nut torque varies by the make & model of vehicle. Some might be 80 ft lbs, however others could be as high as 150 ft lbs. Larger trucks could reach 200 ft lbs. You must check your owners manual for the wheel nut spec. You should always use a 1/2" drive torque wrench to torque wheel nuts.. do not use a ratchet because they only torque to 35 or 40 ft lbs.

Instructions

    • 1 Check the maximum pressure rating of the air tank. The rated pressure is indicated in pounds per square inch (psi). If there is no indication of limit on the tank, do not use it.
    • 2 Drain any accumulated moisture from the compressed air tank before filling. If the tank has no drain valve, you may skip this step.
    • 3 Remove the cap from the fill valve. The valve is the same size and type as used on automobile tires. The location of the valve differs depending on manufacturer.
    • 4 Attach the fitting of the air supply hose to the valve stem of the air tank and depress the fitting firmly. If the air tank has its own pressure gauge installed, keep a close watch to avoid over-pressurizing. Wear safety glasses when filling the air tank.
    • 5 Stop filling the air tank periodically and check the tank pressure using an air pressure gauge if the tank does not have one installed. As the air pressure in the tank increases, check more frequently until the maximum amount is reached.
    • 6 Remove the air supply fitting and replace cap.

Torque information


Front or Back? really it dosent matter as long as it was semi tight before the wheel was placed on the ground. then in a STAR pattern tighten the lugs nuts by hand pretty much as tight as you can get them. If you have a torque wrench, go too manufacturer recommended spec's.

How to change rear ball joints on 2002 dodge stratus


Instructions
  1. Remove the Upper Control Arm
    • 1Disconnect the ground battery cable using a wrench.
    • Loosen the front wheel lugs located on the same side of the upper ball joint you need to replace. Use a lug wrench.
    • Raise that same front wheel off the ground using a floor jack and support the vehicle on a jack stand.
    • Finish removing the tire.
    • Take the cotter pin off the upper ball joint stud holding the steering knuckle arm. Use a pair of nose pliers.
    • Remove the castle nut from the upper ball joint stud using a wrench or ratchet, ratchet extension and deep socket.
    • Loosen the two bolts securing the back of the upper control arm to the mounting bracket. Use a wrench to hold the bolt head as you loosen the retaining nut with a ratchet and socket.
    • Pull the control-arm ball joint off the steering knuckle arm. You may need to use a Pitman arm puller to free the ball joint.
    • Finish removing the two bolts from the back of the upper control arm and lift the upper control arm off the vehicle.
    Install the New Upper Control Arm
    • Set the new upper control arm in place and install the two bolts and retaining nuts to secure the back of the upper control arm to the mounting bracket. Remember the bolt heads should point inward toward the shock absorber with the retaining nuts on the outside of the mounting bracket. Do not tighten the bolts yet.
    • 11Insert the control-arm ball joint on the steering knuckle arm and start the castle nut with your hand over the ball joint stud. Do not tighten the nut yet.
    • Tighten the two bolts on the mounting bracket to 67-foot lbs. (91 Nm) using a torque wrench. Hold the bolts with a backup wrench as you tighten the retaining nuts with the torque wrench.
    • Tighten the ball-joint castle nut to 45-foot lbs. (61 Nm) using the torque wrench, ratchet extension and deep socket.
    • Install a new cotter pin through the joint-ball stud hole using the nose pliers. If necessary, tighten the castle nut just a few degrees to clear the stud hole through one of the castle nut slots.
    • Mount the tire on the wheel assembly and install the wheel lugs using the lug wrench.
    • Lower the vehicle and finish tightening the wheel lugs.

I am trying to replace a wheel lug on my 01 Diamante can you help.


Buy new lug nuts for your vehicle. These can be purchased at an auto parts store or a tire and wheel store in complete sets, online at wheel retailers and through the dealer that sells your vehicle. Be sure to have your make and model of vehicle available so that you get the right lug bolts.

  • 2 Loosen the lug bolts on your vehicle with a lug wrench or a socket and ratchet. Raise the vehicle with a floor jack at the corner where you are going to replace the lug nuts. You can use the jack to support the vehicle while you replace the lug nuts or you can use a jack stand. If you use the floor jack, be careful as you remove and install the lug nuts.
  • 3 Finish removing the lug nuts on the wheel. Thread the new lug nuts onto the studs that the wheel is mounted on. Tighten the lug nuts as tightly as you can with the wheel still in the air. At some point the wheel will start turning.
  • 4 Lower the vehicle back to the ground. Tighten the lug nuts progressively in a crisscross pattern with a torque wrench to the specifications of the manufacturer. This will vary from make to make but is usually around 90 ft-lbs. Repeat the above steps for the other three wheels.

    2001 SL-1 disc brakes in front, drum brakes in back. When I apply the brakes it feels like my wheels are wobbling or out of round if that makes sense. The brakes have 26,000 miles on them.


    Hi and welcome to FixYa!

    As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have the hub nut tightened. If it's loosen, it may shake even not braking. Very dangerous so please have it checked and tightened.

    Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

    If wheel lug nuts are not torque'd properly how long would it take for them to loosen and fall off, in mileage?


    First it would depend on how much they were torqued and the road conditions.The driver side lugs would loosen up first since the lugs turn left to loosen as the car moves forward the lugs will come loose where as the passenger side would tighten a little on there own since moving forward turns the lugs to the right causing them to tighten.If the lugs do come loose your car will start vibrating real bad.It would probably take no more than about 10 to 15 miles like I said depending on road conditions and speed.

    I discovered i was driving for several days with 2 missing lug nuts, a 3rd totally loose and the remaining 2 not very tight


    The tire must have been worked on recently. With aluminum rims, it's not common, but not unheard of for the lug nuts to work themselves loose after servicing. It is recommended to re-torque the nuts 50-75 miles after service. Go ahead replace and tighten the missing or loose ones, and then in a day or so; after having put on the recommend miles, re-tighten them to insure their tightness.

    Unless you feel a wobble or anything else in the suspension that could work a lug nut loose, you really should not have anything to worry about this aside from re-torquing the nuts.

    Mechanics keep on breaking my lug nuts,Why?


    Over tightening. They are probably using an impact wrench to tight the lugs because its the fastest way. Its not the right way though.
    Here is what happens. When the nuts are tightened, the studs will stretch. This tension holds the wheels on to the rim. If you over tighten the studs you can damage them and they could fail. The best approach is to use an impact wrench to snug up the nuts. Then go back with a torque wrench and tighten to the manufacturer specifications.(lug nut torque for your vehicle is 110 ft-lbs ) Next time you are having your tires rotated or changed, make sure the mechanic uses a torque wrench and the correct torque.
