    I am about to put on new rotors and pads. Truck has 70k on it. so it should be ok to pack the bearings and reuse then right? Second thing, when snuging dwon on the wheel bearings are you spose to go as tight as you can then back of a little put the pin in and your done? that is what i was told anyway. Just want to make sure i do this right the first time. thx for the help as always.

    if its your 98 c 2x4 then if thay look good with no burn spots or gouges and spots missing i would clean them repack them and install with new seals. then snog the nut by hand and line up pin hole.
