  1. step : Install the new hub (0:30)
    • Use a wire brush to clean up the steering knuckle
    • Install the hub and hand thread on the bolts.
    • Torque the bolts to 65 ft lbs, rotating between the bolts, tightening a little bit around and around so the hub goes in evenly.
    • Put the hub nut and washer in, tighten but do not torque all the way just yet.
  2. step : Assemble the brake (3:20)
    • Put the rotor back on on, putting a lug nut on just to keep it from jumping around on you while you put the caliper back together.
    • Bolt the caliper bracket back on.
    • Install the brake pads, using a little anti-seize grease on the mounting edges.
    • Compress the caliper with a C-clamp and install it onto the bracket and bolt it in.
    • Torque the hub nut to 175.
    • Have someone in the car put the car in four wheel drive and in gear and hold down the brakes while you do this.
    • Install the hub washer, retainer and cotter pin.
  3. step : Put your wheel back on. (7:20)
    • Put the wheel on and use a star pattern to hand tighten the lug nuts.
    • Lower the vehicle and torque the lug nuts in a star pattern to 100 ft lbs.

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cheroke with abs. Do I need to order my hubs with abs or does it not matter?
Daniel on Jul 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If the originals had ABS, then by all means install the same kind. If you live in AS or Hawaii, and you do not have slippery roads, then I guess you could save yourself a few bucks....
