yeah.. this is my front left one.. . i think it is because the way the thread runs, when the wheel turns forward,the force is exerted so that the nut is unscrewed...

207 lbft according to Haynes - needs a big torque wrench. Once done, I have never had a problem with the nut coming loose. As you say, replacement nut might help aas threads on the nut might be slack.
