    What is meant by \"4-5B axles\"

    What is meant by "4-5B axles"? See the description in the Snap On page. What type/s of axles does this designate? Im trying to do the ball joints and the correct size adjusting sleeve socket has been hard to find. I think this is the one though.

    Thanks guys,

    Signed,

    Not sure what they mean but the tool looks just like the one I just bought (except mines black) should be the right one. [​IMG]

    That was the first one I bought (Napa). It wouldn't fit over the ball joint stud without damaging the threads and it wouldn't have been deep enough anyway.

    I just ordered the Snap On one...hope that is right!

    Mine fit just fine I got mine from O'rielly's it is a northern tool co. product. Hope the snap on one works for you. It is cheaper than the one I got 20$ for mine.
