Dana 44 Pinion Oil Seal Replacement???
I just removed the leaking rear pinion oil seal on my 99 TJ's Dana 44. Now I am ready to install the new one but am wondering what the torque spec. is on the pinion yoke nut (it was tigher that $&%! getting it off!). I don't completely understand the Haynes manual's explanation of 5 in-lbs past the torque required to turn the wheels (jacked up) when the original assembly was together minus the driveshaft.
