changing front axle shaft..axle nut
quick question, how do you guys tighten the axle nut...i know its 175 ft/lbs but do you tighten it with tire on the ground or does someone apply the brakes while its still on jackstands?
IRO 3", SYE, D30 aussie/8.8 aussie, 4.10s, 33's, skids/bumpers
You could apply the brakes. If the wheel still spins try this. I jammed a rod or a big screwdriver that fit into the vent holes on my disc brake through my caliper (there's a little hole up there on the caliper where you inspect the brake pad wear). It makes a stop for your rotor and then you can tighten away.
