    What is the torque spec on the front bearing nuts? They are those weird things with the 4 grooves that require the special socket. I dont have my Haynes with me so I can look it up. Let me know ASAP. Thanks fellas.

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.

    Ok here is how I doit
    after packing and cleaning while rotating the hub assy tighted the first nut to 50 ftlbs, remember to rotate the hub while you tighten the nut! Now back off that same nut until loose, donot pull the hub assy toward you! Now retighted that same nut to 35ftlbs. Now back off or lossen the nut, just bairly!! slide on the trush washer to see were the pin is to line up to the closest hole counter clockwise! Rotae the nut only counterclockwize to get the pin into the nearist hole.
    The second nut can now be torqued to 50ftlbs.
    Hope this helps
