OK anyone with info on retightening these PLEASE email me with info ... or just post the procedure here (would be good info to have) ... I now have two 9"s with loose pinion nuts and don't have any definite info on if you just retorque them or do you have to use a new nut and set preload again or what .... Thanks

Theres a crush sleeve in there. If the pinion nut is loose than your preload is screwed and you'll have to put a new crush sleeve in. They cost like two dollars.

Then you tighten the nut a little and check the bearing preload with an inch pound torque wrench. Keep tightening and crushing the crush sleeve until you get the right preload. I dont remember what the specs are, I'd have to go dig out a manual, theres specs for new and used bearings.

If you're too cheap to go buy yourself a manual let me know, I can rent you one.
