axle hub help please

ok so i replaced my front hubs on my 88 wagoneer and torqued them to 175 and the problems began. when i tried to drive away it acted like the ebrake was on. I lowed the torque on the axle nut like a car (until the wheel would slightly spin) and checked the torque and it was around 50. If i go higher it wont even move. Any ideas?

Re: axle hub help please

What brand hubs did you buy?

Sounds like they're bad to me

Re: axle hub help please

Did you put the washer back in when you replaced the hub?

Re: axle hub help please

I bought carquest premium. I put the washer back in and they match the old ones. When i removed to old ones tbey were loose as well. They work fine when tightned like regular wheel bearings but i know tbey wont last if not torqued.

Re: axle hub help please

2wd or 4wd?

2wd XJs/MJs use regular spindles until around 92.0, 4wd XJs/MJs all use unit bearings.

if you have spindles, it would make a lot of sense that you have issues with them when they're subjected to unit bearing torque levels!

Re: axle hub help please

Can you take a picture of the hub and brake rotor? Does the brake rotor come off the bearing assembly?

Re: axle hub help please

Well i cant figure out how to post pictures. I figured out they sold me the wrong ones, the old ones the bearings were level with the hub surface and the new ones the bearings are recessed into the hub and have a seal that goes around the axle. The axle was rubbing on the hub, it was wider than the bearing surface. As soon as i figure the intraweb out i will post pics.

Your tag usage is right, but you've used a bad URL.
