    Anyone know where to get the spindle nut tool with the four prongs for a 1983 d60. I have one for the half ton diff but can't find the one for the 1 ton. Thanks

    Thanks for your replies I looked on NAPA but had no luck , I will try JC whitney . If any of you can get ahold of a part# I would much appreciate it.

    You know I went to the garage and took another look at the spindle nuts and they are 6 prong and 2.5 inches wide. I found the six prong in JC Whitney but its only 2 1/4 ID. I'm more confused now than before.

    If you measure the distance between the slot cut outs in the nut it will be 2-1/4".

    I've got a slick socket that I bought from Mac Tools several years ago. The inner part of it fits the 4-prong nuts, while the outer part fits the 6-prong nuts (At least it fits the ones on my 14-bolt FF rear axle). The part number is FWD 2740. It lets me carry one less tool in the box, so there's more room for other stuff. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
