Finally got one of the wheel bearing on the CarrotVan but the half shaft nut spec calls for 180 lbs ... my new clicker T wrench only goes up to 150. So should I give that nut aNutter grunt and be good?

You can click it at 150 and then give it a hair more of a tweak. And if they still have you stuffing a cotter through a cage, you can do that for security sake , then re-check it in a few months or so I guess.

b-a .... The drivers side was done and completed last nite .... is there really THE NEED to get it up to 180 ? .... I realize that that torque spec is what keeps the bearing together over the long-haul.

what about rigging up a 2.4" C to C crows feet type extension so that 120 on the torque wrench is imparting 180 fl lbs (if my thinking is right on this). I'm sorry just bored during the heatwave! EDIT meant to say 150 instead of 120
