    Which of the two tools that appear on the attachment should I buy? I'm using it to replace the bearings of my front 10-bolt axle. My guess is the one in the left, but I'd rather be sure.

    The one on the left looks like the right one, I bought mine 2 months ago.

    The one on the left is better. Before I bought mine I rented one like those on the right, I had a spun bearing & the male style wouldn't break the nut loose. I had no problem breaking the nut loose with the female style. Hope This Helps

    Either tool will work on your front end. The one on the left fits ONLY the front bearing retainer on rigs that use the 4-slot nut, such as Dana 44's and your 10-bolt.

    The one on the right is perfect if you have a 14-bolt FF rear and a Dana 44 or 10-bolt front. The outer "male" pins (look closely, there are 6 of them) fit the bearing retainer nuts on the 14-bolt FF. Just inside the tool, at a slightly smaller diameter, is the female 4-pin tool that fits the front axle. So you get two spanner sockets for the price of one. [​IMG]
