i'm trying to figure this out myself, best i can tell is that its a 2 5/16 on my FF doge D60 rear. but i can't find a socket that big so i don't know for sure. anyone know what size it is and where to get one?
Need to buy the socket designed for the axle, not because it is a weird size or anything, but because a normal socket won't fit between the hub and the nut. It will be a painted stamped steel socket. It's cheaper than a quality 3/4"drive socket of the same size. You can use a regular socket, but you have to grind the shit out of it.
If you go to a good parts store, tell them what axle it is, they will supply you with the correct socket. I bought mine from Dodge dealership a couple years ago for about $20, and they might just loan you one.
