Torqued them up to 150 Ft-lbs which felt like it prity tight then up to 160Ft-lbs and I'm happy with that.

The hub nuts did not seem overly tight when I removed them, It was a garage who replaced the rear wheel bearings and they were last to have the drums off...

they probably never torqued them up in the first place then.

My thoughts exactly,

The Garage replaced one of the wheel bearings a few weeks before I sorted out my rear brakes, as the bearing became very noisey over xmas even though I couldnt find the invoice for the job the garage was happy enough to replace the bearing under warrenty.

Think in future Ill check the hub nuts if anyone else has them off
