    Brake rotor screw 124 in lbs
    Caliper mounting bracket bolts 170 ft lbs
    Caliper guide pin bolts 46 ft lbs

    It says to use loctite/ thread locker on the caliper guide pin bolts and caliper bracket bolts.

    It also says do not reuse wheel nut on the end of the hub which I do not understand because it isn't Torque to Yield where you tighten the bolt to one spec and then an additional amount of degree's to stretch the bolt and reach its final value.

    FYI'S

    The bolt to get the hub nut off is a 36MM

    I use a long truck prybar between to of the studs and the ground to prevent the hub from moving.

    Also for the three 13MM bolts in the back its works out best if you turn the wheel to get them out.

    Just a few things I learned today!!

    Re: winding noise

    Well I finished the job today and wanted to say what a pain in the @SS. It took me over 1 hour just to get the hub out. It was in there tight and I had almost no room to hit it with my hammer. Also I found out my fricking CV is torn. Look at the bright side, the whining noise is gone!!!

    Re: winding noise

    When you said the CV is Torn I am taking that as the Rubber CV boot over the CV joint is damaged. Those can be bought separately

    If you need the front outer boot then you can get it from www.rockauto.com. Otherwise I have no idea except don't try a dealer unless you want to buy the entire CV joint.

    Re: winding noise

    UPDATE........


    I recomend if your thinking of changing the boot dont, just change the axle. I got mine at advance for 65.00
    So I soent 7 hours on my cts today trying at first to change the boot, then finding out that it was not possible for me I had to change the axle. I had the entire assembly off except the god dam upper A bolt. FYI, you need to burn off the Nylon they put in the bolt from the factory. Then add pressure with a long pry bad, use the very top of the spring and press DOWN for max pressure to get that bolt off. Once I got the A arm off I used pry bar under car after taking all the plastic off. Putting the new one in by hand sucked but I think I got it, the wheel hasnt fallen off yet!!


    All and all I destroyed the clothes I was wearing, got grease all over the car and had to replace 2 bolts and 3 nuts. I also lost 7 lbs because it was about 92 today. Bottom line, I got it done. I could have saved so much time just doing the axle!!!
