Has anyone suffered from rear axle hub nuts loosening?
I have to constantly re-tighten mine! I have recently replaced both hubs, bearings and nuts because of damage caused by them loosening.
they are tightened to the correct torque per the manual, I have even resorted to using Locktite thread locker in an effort to stop them loosening but it still happens!!!
By the way I have a CV conversion on the car ( bought from Canley Classics) which is a vast improvement over the old Rotoflex couplings.
I would be grateful of any advice on the matter.

regards Fred
