I appreciate it guys!

The point was to do something with the evo wheels I already had while increasing traction and maintain the gvr4 by replacing the bearings....win win.

Guess I should tint the Windows now?

Evo steering wheel to be installed in ~2 weeks as well.

Ok, back to needing a bit of help.

Removed the front pass tire due to a small leak, and found that the new bearing in the hub has play....Not sure how that happened as nothing out of the ordinary occurred during installation...

Any ideas?

check the torque on axle nut? maybe the hub wasnt completely seated?

With the car in the air and wheel off, torque the axle nut to spec. Afterwards, check for play. At that point, there shouldn't be any. If there is, the races aren't seated properly in the hub, or something is keeping the races from properly sandwitching the bearings.

Agreed, also try tightening it 50lbs over torque, loosen it, then apply proper torque. That can help seat the bearings.

Will do this tomorrow night and report back, thanks for the help.

I did drive the car ~25 miles, hopefully no damage was done.

So I guess I'm an idiot and didn't torque this down correctly.

Once I torqued down the axle nut, the play has vanished, sorry to waste others time.

Quoting prove_it:

I think this would go along the lines of also not using an impact to seat the nut, and then either leaving it or backing it off to allow for hand tightening to final torque.

Never a good idea to go above torque for fear of brinnelling due to indents that could be caused by overtightening.

Not saying this will happen, but these dual ring ball bearing style setups, should set just fine at the prescribed torque setting.

I suggest using a punch or long screw driver lodge in the veins of the rotor, contacting the caliper, to allow for a "locked" driveline corner while tightening an axle nut.

Some car manufacturers resort to wonderful ways of seating their bearings (VW), in stages of torque and release, torque and degree/stretch, etc, but that never achieves more than the maximum torque point for the

bearings.

Did you not have a cotter pin installed?

oh, it was on an integra. those dont have cotter pins, your suppose to stake the nut. but no, i didnt do that either. always thought it was stupid...then one actually loosened lol. i try to do it now, and even put the cotter pin in the galant (note, need new ones for 5lug swap).
