Re: 2wd front hub axle stub torque

Never thought of doing it that way! I'll keep that in mind next time.

I ended up putting the rotor on and putting on the lug nuts to keep it straight. I had my wife start the engine and apply the brakes while I torqued it to 175 ft lbs. Worked like a charm.

Also, Dorman 05101 Spindle Lock Nut Kit is the correct part number for the 2wd also (though it only lists 4wd). You do have to keep your spring washer as it doesn't come with one oddly enough.

Glad to have her back on the road!
