Pinion seal nut size

Anybody know off-hand what size the nut on my rear pinion is? Its an 89 Suburban with a 10-bolt.
I'm not sure if its metric or SAE, but its big, I don't have the right size socket, and can't afford to be buying a bunch of different sizes right now.

Thanks.

Re: Pinion seal nut size

I am pretty sure that is is a 32mm. I had been working on mine and I know it was the biggest in my bunch. Make sure you get the right torque on it when you put it back.

Try puting some calipers on that nut first. I wouldn't want you to haveto be going to the store a bunch of times.
