Make certain you are not torqueing with the cars weight on the wheel. I put a very large screwdriver in the rotor vent and let the caliper 'buck up' the assembly while torqueing the axle nut. (I'm sure Ivan knows what he's doing, but others reading here might need that info.)

While we're talking about these, what's the torque spec for Subaru axle nuts? I found 137 +/- 14 ft lbs in the MY 95 FSM.

But my wrench maxes out at 150 so I used that. - hope it's close enough.
