RWB have you tried using new castle nuts? maybe the threads on the old ones are worn or stretched a bit from being torqued many times, also if you use a washer that is too thick that gets torqued to 180 it will cause extra wear on your bearings. Wheel spacers will add a bit of extra load on them as well, did you have issues before the wheel spacers where added?

Done new castle nuts, tried 120 ft lb, tried 180 ft lb, had issue before the spacers too. Factory torque spec is still 180 on the newer style with the thick washers tho ( which mine came with ).

Gonna do new bearings, castle nuts, washers, torque to 120, and use Orange loc tite this time... if it still does it....I’m gonna try these next time, hadn’t seen ( or remembered seeing them ) before last night

Hmmmm, hadn't seen those. Interesting. Wonder how those hardened steel pins will interface with the axle when the nut backs off... I do think they're way overpriced; the stock axle nuts are $2.50 each, mail order. Those are $60 for 2.

I don’t disagree about the over priced part lol.

I’m curious about the pins too... at least a cotter pin will bend and wedge in the nut, those pins would just shear.... but I trust Hess’ judgement, they build some good stuff.

To bad they aren’t a authorized vendor here.

It would be nice to hear to directly from the manufacturer about these. Oh well. Rules are rules.
