    I need to get some big open-end wrenches so I can tighten/remove/adjust my 1 ton chevy TREs (moog). Anyone know what size the jam nuts are? I can't seem to find my caliper (need to clean the damn house!) and all I know is that they are bigger than 1"...

    anyone know off the top of their head?

    They are not bigger than 1". The stock ones are likely to be 7/8" from what I understand.

    I haven't had mine out yet though, so I can't say for sure.

    He seems to mean the wrench size, not the thread size. I'd check if I had one handy

    Mine are 1-1/4" - they are the ones that fit the ORD 1-1/2" O.D. rod piece.
