James, tighten the bearings to a reasonable level and reinstall the rotor, caliper and wheel and lower the car to the ground so the weight is on the bearing. Tighten wheel bearing nut to 214 ft/lbs. Jack it back up and remove the wheel. Stake the collar into the nut. Apply LT 638 sealant to grease cap and knock it back into place.
