Does 1-1/2" Spindle Nut Have a Torque Setting  


Hello, What is the recommended torque for this nut and a #99 spindle? Thanks


Expert Reply:

Trailer spindle nuts, like the 1-1/2" Spindle Nut # 6-96, don't have a specific torque setting. What you'll want to do is snug up the trailer nut and then back it off a little so your trailer hub has some some freedom of movement. If you have it torqued down too much it will make it harder for your hub to move and will cause it to overheat.
