Obviously a socket with the correct number of sides is best, but I have
used a 12 point 2-3/16" socket on the later axle several times. Because
the nut is thin, I machined the leading edge chamfer off the socket in
I have the two factory tools and they have a pilot that fits into the
axle to keep the socket square and centered on the nut. A definite plus.
But I can't always generate enough torque to loosen a nut with the
factory tool. Could make a longer tommy bar, but the socket works well.
When installing the nut, I make sure that the side that is stamped RH or
LH is facing out. Helps the next person that has to take the nut off.
