Default Wheel Bearing Assembly replacement, Torque specs?

Hi all,

First time poster here.

I'm about to replace a front wheel bearing hub assembly on my 08 GC. Unfortunatley I'm out of luck for the extended warranty. I don't think the job should be too bad as long as the rust isn't horrid.

I'm wondering if anybody knows the Axle nut size and torque specs? How about the torque specs for the 4 bolts holding the assembly in place?

Thanks all.

Default Wheel Hub replacement

If I remember correctly the axle nut size is 30MM. DO NOT use an impact wrench to remove or replace the nut; torque by hand.
Torque spec for the hub bearing I believe is 50-70 ft lbs. Use plenty of nevercease on the bolts and the hub so you can get the disc off when necesssary.
