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.

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..
