dpmeeks I got it fixed, i installed a new drum w/bearing installed and torqued to 175 so hopefully it should be good to go for awhile :)

Grumpy The auto manufacturers don't just dream up the specifed torque values and torquing procedure out of thin air. The engineering dept. will determine the torque value by looking at the expected loads, the material spec., fits/clearances, environment, thread (course, fine, superfine), allowance for run-on torque, lubrication, etc. When a torque value/torque procedure is specifed in the Owner's Manual and/or Service/Shop Manual, don't second guess it.

Incognito27 Don't forget if you have ABS , there may be a Tone ring that the drums with bearings may not have. I ran into that .

amc49 Reuse nut but make sure it pulls up to torque correctly, you'll feel it give if it's failing. I use them once or several times based on that. Make sure you hit the full torque number, simply very tight there don't cut it, you'll be walking in a week and get to do it over.............175-200ft.lbs. works fine.

Tymes Remember some of these stores call the SE a ZX4, because that's what it changed to. I've had that problem before.
