Axle Nut torque specifications

I am replacing the front hub assembly on my 99 Grand cherokee 4x4. I need to know how many lbs. pounds to tighten the 36mm axle nut too. Reason I am asking is because i replaced this hub not much over a year ago and it has already went bad. I want to make sure it isnt something i am doing wrong. Thanks for any help!!

175 ft.lbs. is the short answer... longer answer is, "brand." Honestly, brands really matter a lot.

Thanks for both replys. That should be helpful. The bearing brand I got is Timken. The one I got a year ago came from Advance. It was still under warranty and when i went to get it replaced they couldnt find my warranty info, so I was out of luck. But I was glad to find the Timkens for the same money.

For future reference, what Jeep do you have?

Your profile says a 99 Cherokee (XJ), but you said you have a 99 Grand Cherokee (WJ), but you posted in the 93-98 Grand Cherokee (ZJ) forum.

You should like the Timkins. A lot of folks on here have said many good things about them, and I just recently put a set on my Jeep. So far they seem pretty good, and I like them!

Welcome to JF!

PS: 175 Ft LBS is the recommended torq spec for the hub nut, so get a few friends and 3 foot breaker bar to tighten that thing up.
