I'm getting driveworks hubs from advanced auto for my 03 lesabre and their torque specs are 150-155 ft. Lbs. I know that factory is 118. Which one should I go with? Thanks!

I would go with 118 if that is the specification listed in the FSM . It is important to have the correct preload on the bearing for our application and I trust the FSM as being the best source of info.

I just concerned or wondering if they have they're own specs for they're bearings. I know that the correct torque is CRITICAL.
