REAR AXLE REPLACEMENT (Continued).
Check alignment of tire assembly by placing a block of wood or other object on the ground
at the side of the tire and rotate the wheel. If the distance between the block of wood and
the tire varies by more than 1/8 in. (.32cm), the tire assembly is not properly mounted. To
correct loosen the nut on the side with the greatest deviation and tighten the nuts on the
opposite side. Recheck the torque and the alignment.
Lug nuts should be rechecked for proper tightness after the first 50 miles (80.5
Km) to 100 miles (160.9 Km) of operation after wheel reinstallation.
Lower trailer and remove hydraulic jack and jack stands from equalizing beams.
