The advantage of this method is that you do not have to undo the hub nut behind the grease cap which is torqued to 235nm which is 173 ft.lbs.

The disadvantage is that you are working behind the brake back plate so access is difficult. Please ensure the socket is an exact fit otherwise you will struggle, do not use a multi point socket. Ensure you clean off the threads of the bolt and apply thread lock before you put them back.

Finally, hope you do not mind me telling you - Do not try it unless the car is fully supported and the other wheels chocked - not on a jack.
