THanks, Excellent point.
I have a pretty good feel for wheel bearing prelaods. I had class eight trucks for thirty years and got plenty of practice R&R'ing wheels and axles.. All the bearing manufactures had a torque spec for the inner (and outer) nuts. I followed their instructions.
I called a local shop to see about getting gaskets to shim the axles. No got. Ordering would take a few days so I decided to make them. I've got a lifetime supply of gasket material of various thicknesses and applications. I make enough to finish the job.
