Hi all, I'm looking for correct bolt torque specs for front hub replacement. Axle nut, the 3 hub bolts, caliper slide pins, caliper bracket bolts. Thanks much!

I never torque any of those except the axle nut. 118 lb ft if I remember correctly. The others just need to be tightened as tight as you can get it.

True, and I usually do the same. It's certainly good for someone newer to get an idea of the specs to calibrate their "internal torque wrench" so they don't over/under tighten things as they do more.

I know the axle nut was originally 118 ft/lbs but that was before the redesigned hubs. Even if it’s the origins style wheel bearing hub I like torquing them to 135 ft/lbs, I’ve had much better results that way. New style hub go at least 165-180ft/lbs.
