Boy we could run with that title. . .but this is the tech section
 
1/8 to a 1/4 is about right.  I usually wrench the nut 1/2 a turn to be sure the spindle is all the way down.  Back off and set it to the 1/8 to 1/4

Yer nuts are not torquing correctly?  I think there's some medicine you can take for that these days.......see a urologist
