Rear wheel bearing pre-load? Chrysler mini van

Recommended Posts

I'm helping my daughter's friend out with her van. If you need the year, I can ask, but would think they'd pretty much be the same. Its old and has high miles. 90's I think.

Anyway, I am replacing the shocks for her and noticed the rear wheel bearings are loose. I am wondering if there is a pre-load spec or any torque I am suppose to put the bearings.

Or, do I just snug them up, back off a 1/4 like a trailer since its pretty much like a trailer axle back there.

The last bearings I did were on a 4x4 front hub. Definitely needed pre-load and torque on the lock nut.

Any advice?

Thanks.
