    Well, Im going to pick up my 14 bolt and 8 lug 10 bolt in a couple of days. I plan to put new bearings and seals and brakes on it. To do this I need a hub socket for the rear ( six point I think ) and also a hub socket for the front (Ive been borrowing one from work, but I want to buy one now). Anyway, my question is does anybody make a combination socket with the six point on one side and the four point on the other or do I have to buy them seperate. I appreciate any help you can give me.

    Hmm. I know Matco doesnt make a combination socket so that rules them out. Maybe Snap On or Mac. The problem is those two barely ever come by my work while the Matco guy comes in all the time. Anybody else know.

    I've got one that I bought off of a Mac Tools truck about 10 years ago. Don't know if they still sell it or not. I think I've also seen one that was the Lisle brand.

    I bought one at Pep Boys a few years ago, I think it was a Lisle (red package?). Cost around $28-$30. It also works better than most of the other 4 lug ones I've used.
