    Does anyone know the torque specs for a front wheel bearing assembly on a 98 tahoe? Specifically the axle shaft nut?

    They should be tightened with a wrench and then slightly loosened. Wheel bearings will expand from heat while at running temperatures. If tightened too tight, when they expand it will cause them to bind and cause premature failure.
