Default 01 Silverado nut torque question

Doing a brake job on my 2001` Silverado 4X4 Dually. Does anyone know, or know what the torque spec is for the nuts that hold the rotor and hub extension. I have found the actual wheel lug torque is spec'd at 175 ft/lbs.

Thanks in advance,

Greg

Are you asking about the large nut that is in the center of the hub that you can see once you pull the drum off?

Sorry, no that'* not it. I have a 1 ton and the front wheel studs have an extender that attaches with 8 standard hex nuts. That extension has 8 of its own studs which is what the tire attaches to with wheel lug nuts. It'* there for compatibility with the deep rims that are necessary on the dual real wheel so that the wheels can be rotated back to front.

Hope that makes more sense. I should have snapped a pic and attached it to my original post. Doh!

Yes, that'* what I'm looking for. I had an Alldata subscription but I let it lapse at the time it expired, else I would have had the info at hand.
