    I have a Dana 60 and a 14FF. Problem is I have no lug nuts. I found several on e-bay that are way cheaper than buying them at the auto parts store of your choice. The problem is they all say that there lug nuts convert 14mm to 9/16-18. Now I know that is physically impossible does anyone know what they could possibly mean? Here is a link to the ones I am thinking of getting can anyone tell me if these are correct.

    Thanks

    I bought my 9/16-18 lug nuts from Autozone. They are acorn style and have a tall shank that covers the entire threaded area of the stud. They are not open at all on the end, which keeps crud off the threads and gives more thread contact as well as socket contact. They use a 7/8 socket and cost about a dollar each. 4wheel parts can also get them.

    those are for the old axles like you have but for the newer rims that are off the 88-up body style trucks with the centers that get held on with the black plastic nuts. hope this helped ya.

    So they will work for my application? When they say it is to convert 14mm to 9/16 they mean you can use the crappy plastic cover on your old axles. Call me strange but I want the open lug nuts I have just not had good luck with the closed end lug nuts.
