16. Each front axle bearing requires its own special torque procedure. Most times there is a torque setting for the adjusting nut. This is set while having someone rotate the hub, then the adjusting nut is backed off a half turn, then it is retorqued to a lower torque setting, again while the hub is being spun, and again backed off about 3/8 turn. Then the lock ring is installed and the outer locknut installed last. This way the bearings are properly seated but not overtorqued. Check your truck's shop manual or the manual for the truck your axle is out of for proper torque settings and procedure.
