    Thank you Steve.
    I'm trying to torque the rear axle nut. The book is listing it for 22kgm. That's kind of high!!!
    Your thoughts?

    That is a big torque, but it's a big fastener too. I don't have my 308GT4 WSM with me, but I can't recall anyone mentioning that the value given in Section M was wrong or needed a tweak.

    No wonder I had such a hard time removing them. That's almost 160 foot pounds. The home build socket held up!!

    To be honest with you I did.
    What really got me was the conversion. It just didn't look right. That's a very high torque nut.
    Thank you though. I appreciate the help.

    Just as an FYI, only 22k on the vehicle and all the rear bearings were grinding!!
