NOTE
The wheel hub retaining nut can be re-used four times, mark the wheel hub retaining nut. The nut should be scribed with a mark each time it is reinstalled. Do not exceed four uses.

On models with rear drum brakes, perform the following:
Install the wheel hub. Do not fully tighten the wheel hub retaining nut at this stage.
Tighten the wheel hub retaining nut while rotating the brake drum 10 times in the opposite direction when tightening the wheel hub retaining nut to prevent damage to the bearing. Tighten the nut to 173 ft. lbs. (235 Nm).
Apply the parking brake.
Install the wheel and tire.



On models with rear disc brakes, perform the following:
Install the wheel hub. Do not fully tighten the wheel hub retaining nut at this stage.
Now, tighten the wheel hub retaining nut while rotating the brake drum 10 times in the opposite direction when tightening the wheel hub retaining nut to prevent damage to the bearing. Tighten the nut to 173 ft. lbs. (235 Nm).
Install the rear disc and caliper.
Install the wheel and tire.
