Need to check torque as front cv shaft is moving in and out, and want to check specs on everything in there. It was just replaced a while ago.
2002 Corolla Spindle Nut, Front, Torque Specs.

Front lock nut - 159 ft.lbs (quick online search). Don't have access to my EPC or my FSM right now - so I can't 100% verify it.
Might be able to get a dealership to quote you that number - my local one will do that for me, depending on which person I get on the other end.
A little bit of slop is OK, though sounds like there is excessive movement with those axles - might be the snap ring - could have snapped off or gotten loose.

I checked the torque, 161 ft/lbs on my wrench.
I then put both front tires in the back. I thin it moved the problem.. need to do some more driving. I only did a short distance on Highway..
