Some are torqued as high as 250 ft.-lbs, best I can do is to use an 18" breaker bar, put my foot about 15" from the socket and hit it with all my 200 pounds. It ain't going to rattle. But is torque the problem, is the nut coming loose so the CVJ is banging on the hub bearing every revolution of the wheel? Or is this a piece of Made in China crap where perhaps it was never even lubed correctly. Unfortunately, no way to check that, have to rely on faith.
Or get a decent one.
Would have been cheaper if you replaced three already, to get an OE unit, really a lot cheaper if that bearing seizes causing you to run into a mall.
Major job in changing these things, if you can remove the old one, is the clean up work involved, like to see bare metal and can't help but coating all the surfaces with anti-seize, just a thin painted on like finish. Surfaces must be flat. With torquing say between 120-160 ft.-lbs, is the nut actually turning? Did buy a 375 ft.-Lb electronic torque wrench back in the late 70's, damned electronics went to hell, company went out of business, so there I sat. Definitely prefer an analog wrench, when you hear that crack, don't know if its the wrench or what you are tightening breaking apart.
