    I have no idea what the pitch is but the nut uses a wrench larger than 1 1/4" but smaller than 1 5/16" go figure. I had a buddy machine the nut for me so that a 1 1/4" wrench fits perfect.

    It's 7/8"-14 tpi. It's not a standard nut though, it's thinner. I tried quite a few fastener places without any luck and finally just went to GM and bought one there. $10 for a single nut...but at least you only need one. :rolleyes:

    Oops, I read that wrong, You were talking about the nut not the socket/wrench size.

    Rene's on the money as always, it's a stupid size. Junkyard or the dealer are gonna be your best bet.
