Anyone got an inch pound torque wrench I can borrow?  I will be swapping out my dana 30 front axle for a rubicon dana 44 with e-locker and I need to change the pinion flange on the dana 44 to use my stock driveshaft.  In reading up on this it looks like to do it right I need to measure the preload on the pinion bearing before I remove the pinion nut so I can make sure I get the proper torque on the nut when I install the stock pinion flange on the dana 44?
