Clicking from rear end? Torque axle nuts

Do you get an odd clicking from the rear wheel areas when you stop / start / change acceleration? You most likely need to re-torque your axle nuts.  From the factory, they can get slop in the bearing assembly / hub, and this solved it for me (as odd as it sounds).

  1. Remove Wheel Center Caps
  2. Unstake Nut (optional)
  3. Remove Nut & Grease Nut face
  4. Tighten Nut to Original Position (~180 ft-lbs)
  5. Tighten Nut approximately 60 degrees
  6. Stake Nut
  7. Replace Center Cap
