Torque settings! HELP

I just bought a socket to remove my axle bearing nut from my axle. Since I am replacing my rotors. I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH I SHOULD TORQUE IT WHEN I PUT THE AXLE BEARING NUT BACK ON

2wd 17-25 lb/ft then loosen 1/2 turn and tighten to 18-20 in/lb (INCH POUNDS)

4wd (auto hubs) 35lb/ft back off 1/4 turn then 16 in/lb (INCH POUNDS)


This is straight out of the 1994 workshop manual. If you tighten your wheel bearings to a value in foot pounds, you wont get too far

Thanks A lot man! BOTH of you guys! Just put both rotors in and brand new carbon-metallic pads, AND NEW LEFT CALIPER. But for sone unknown reason the passenger-side tire is making a humming sound. Yet I greased both inside and outside bearing and bolted eelverything right back up. Any ideas? I think eother somehow one of the bearing slipped, or for all I know the passenger side brake pads haven't seated with the new rotor yet? I don't know.

I reused both inner and outer bearings on both sides. But the thing Is that last time I got my axle bearings replaced the guy reused the seals. So the bearing are new. And they seemed to be in great shape. But now that I replaced all that stuff and put it back together. Now it's making that sound. New seals for both rotors now. They only have one seal per each rotor. And it's 4X4

sounds like one of your hubs could be partially engaged....do you have automatic hubs?

Yes. Push button right above my deck on my dash. But the otter thing is that my 4X4 hasn't been working in a year and a half. I don't know whether it's an electronic problem like a blown fuse or shorted wire. Or if it's mechanical and it won't engage where it meets the transfer case. Any advice

Do the lights on the dash go on when you switch it into 4x4? if yes, possibly bad hubs

Yea they're not blinking on or anything. I thought maybe it was just a blown fuse. But I couldn't even locate it. I traced it down and it goes down the center of my dash behind my cup holders. How far down is the fuse? And if it isn't the fuse what else could it be. A shorted wire or cut or internal of the transfer case?
