I think there is more to it than just setting the torque, you have to preload the bearing and there are procedures for doing it right, with the right amount of clearance. I'm on dial up but search for an installation guide for it on the net. Something like this http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=479888 see the last post about setting and the crush sleeve. Hope this helps. [cheers]
