    You don't mention it, but the Caliper carrier bolts should be tightened to 275Nm or 203lb.ft

    The halfshaft retaining nut needs to be 230Nm or 169lb.ft You should always use new hub nuts as teh retaining collar is designed to be indented in the driveshaft and stops it from coming undone!...
    I added these torque settings to the post. Thanks again.

    How do you "re-dimple" the hub nut into the spline? Any Special Tools Or techniques?

    Use a punch/screwdriver and a hammer.

    Question, does replacing the rear involve the same steps and parts?

    Maybe I'm late to this post. I checked the service manual, it says the shaft retainer nut is 285lbs

    I know this thread is 3 months old but Landrover changed the torque to 160 lb. ft., too many wheel bearing failures due to over tightening.

    I replaced my driver side front Hub over the weekend with 163,xxx at the odo. I have air tools (Impact wrench and hammer). With the impact wrench, it removed the hub nut without counter loading (it took at lease a few dozen of impacts to break loose). To break loose the wheel hub, I used air hammer and it was much easier than I thought.
