    General mods for any AE with front axle nuts

    Put a electric motor washer on the end of the front axle (after you put the wheel on) then the axle nut.

    This will insure that you have contact ONLY with bearing race when you tighten the nut.
    I had one nut deform to the point it had push the bearing shield on to the ball bearings!!!
    This was with a plex nut not a metal nut!!!

    Shoe Goo the E-clip on the end of the axle. Reason, axles develop (end to end) a bit of play in the steering arm axle socket.
