I am new on here for a couple of weeks and am learning. Since I just bought my RS
about 3 weeks ago.
So I read this thread last night and took a look also at my clymer manuel to see some pics.
I opened my 2003 up today and got some good news and some not quite as good news when I checked the front drive nut.
With almost 30k miles mine was not loose thankfully nice and tight...so that is good news.
However the bend over tab that the clymer talks about and shows pics of is not bent up and the nut is half way in the middle of the tab as opposed to where the tab could be bent up along one of the flat sides.
I did not have any socket as big as I need anyway so I will get one and some of the lock stuff and go from there.
If it is torqued correctly and the nut is still half way in the middle I wonder if I can bend it up as good as possible at that position? All the more reason to use the lock stuff you talked about.
Thanks for the info!
