will i f@ck all my new stuff,if i do up the front disc nut by hand ?
and dont do up the disc to 15nm and undo 1/2 turn.
my brakes have seriously gone to shight and my tourqe wrench is in hock till next week :cry:

also i bought new ball joints and had them pressed into spare spindles.
the lower joints (powermax) dont have grease nipples ..
all the joints are very stiff and wondering is this from lack of grease?
the old ones move freely.
how do i and do i need to get grease in there ?
much apreciated

I have never used a torque wrench to tighten wheel bearing
1 Tighten up the wheel bearing
2 back off nut 90 degrees
3 tighten nut till nut contacts washer
4 check for looseness
5 install spilt pin
done
If ball joint has no grease nipple then it is sealed for life.

do you mean the caliper nut? if it's the caliper nut i normally use an adjustable wrench plus a ratchet. does the job fine and my opinion, better than a tq wrench cheers
