Why wouldnít you replace the hub bolt? Youíve gone to all that trouble, may as well do it properly.

Anyway, your torque values seem way off. With a new stretch bolt, youíre supposed to torque it to 132 ft*lb plus another 180 degree turn, so basically way more than 132 ft*lb. But youíre not using a new stretch bolt, so who knows?

And 26 ft*lb is way, way too low for the caliper carrier bolts. I donít know what itís supposed to be, but I know that I used a huge breaker bar and it was still a bitch. 26 ft*lb is nothing.
