    i have done some searching and i guess i am putting
    the wrong search information in.
    i have noticed i slight humm , in the front wheels going
    down the highway when i turn the wheels slightly to change
    lanes. i shook the wheels and i felt a little movement . i assume i need to tighten the wheel bearings a little but i am
    not sure how to do it. i have manual locking hubs on a 10 bolt axle. i am sure i thought i saw a little writeup on this but
    i can find it. can somebody help me?

    I think there are two different sized spanner sockets, but don't recall. I've had mine for darn near 10 years (and lost MANY brain cells since then). If they have two sizes, I recommend getting both. You can always take one back.
