    What is the rear pinion nut size? Socket size? It's a 10b on a 84 k5.

    If someone knows that, maybe someone knows what the pinion nut sizes are of a front D60 and a 14b....

    IIRC the 10 bolt, D60 and 14 bolt all use a 1-1/2" socket... I could be wrong though and it may not apply to all years. I know that's what was on my D60/14 bolt and it's also what was on my ZR2's 10 bolt rear end. ;)

    I believe that they are 7/8" fine thread prevailing torque nuts. 1.5" socket.
