Re: Trouble with spindle nut
Both inner and outer spindle nuts should be the same size. I've never had a problem with the cheapie spindle nut socket. I used the chisel method before I got the socket, but if it's stuck that tight I don't know if it'll work.
If you're worried about the wheel bearings just go ahead and replace them; they're not all that expensive. Just remember to get a new seal, too. But when you pull the hub and look at a bearing, if the rollers are pitted it needs to be replaced.
