    I lost mine and need to buy a new one. I was down at the parts store and they were not labled for applications. just measurements. Like usual, the parts "pros" had no clue.

    What is the correct spindle nut socket for my 82k20? Size and number of teeth would be great.

    Powerbuilt (altrade) lists the 3/4 ton and 1/2 ton as seperate tools even though they are both 10 bolts???



    thanks

    You're talking about the magic socket to pull the front hubs, right?

    It's four pin; six is for D60's and 14BFF's.

    My trusty HF digital caliper says OD of mine is 2.35" and ID is 1.98". I'd guess 2" ID and 2 5/16" outer, maybe 2 3/8".

    Man, partsamerica.com is useless. It has a category for spindle sockets but says there are none to match, even if I remove all the vehicles so it doesn't have to match anything.

    HTH.
