Re: 93 Metro keeps burning up rear wheel bearings

Here we go again. If properly assembled, the tightness of that nut will not effect the bearing in any way. There is no adjustment of play in the bearing, there is no over tightening it and crushing the bearing. The torque from that nut goes through the inner race, a solid piece of metal.

Fronts are 129 lbs/ft
Rears are 74 lbs/ft
