Reply to "Tighten rear axle nuts with a “torque multiplier”?"

Tightening the nut creates an axial tensile stress in the axis to oppose the lateral force exerted by the tires when cornering.
This effort is completely independent of the power transmission (350-400 or 500 or 600 or .... PS), or rather of the corresponding torque, which creates a torsional stress in the axis.
These two stresses are independent, even if they combine to produce the total stress in the axis.


The axial force in turns is only supported by the outer bearing, this is why it is better to replace the outer bearing with a double row ball bearing rather than the inner bearing, but this requires to machine the hub:
