    I am doing the 8 lug conversion, and I need the torque specs for the inner locknut on the outer wheel bearing. I need the initial torque spec to set the bearings, I know I have to adjust it after that. I also need the torque spec for the spindle nuts.

    For the adjusting nut on the bearing, I pull it down tight to seat the bearings, then back it off and pop it at 50lbs and then back it off an 1/8 of a turn.
    My book shows 25ftlbs for the spindle nuts, that seems a bit light to me.
    They are a 3/8" fine thread nut so around 40 ftlbs would not hurt them.
