    Hey, all. Got another dumb ? 'bout my recently acquired D70U. What size socket do I use to remove the spindle nuts? I stopped by Kragen, but the only spindle nut sockes they had wer 4-prong , like the one for my D44, and 6-prong. My spindle nut looks like it takes a regular 6-point socket, but somewhere around 2 1/2". I did not see one of these at Kragen. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    mine is 2 9/16"
    but the thread is the same as a front 60 so you could change it out to match

    no idea if mine is a U but it is a 70

    I have a Blue Point version
    it is designed for this application
    kinda like formed sheetmetal not a real forged socket
    it is 3/4 drive so I tack welded a 1/2" drive adapter to it
    you need a p#?

    that is why I mentioned the thread sharing
    if you already own a 60 socket might be a good idea to change to a socket you already own

    OK, I know the kind you're talking aboot. Look's like I'll have to buy one. The 70 is on jackstands in my garage, I am still searching for the elusive D60.
