TJ/ZJ D30 Spindle..axle shaft end..whatever nut

going down to fix the axle on my ZJ, and want to make sure I have the right tools. Only thing I know I don't have is a large enough socket for the nut on the axle shaft. Sholdn't need it, but if'n I need to swap the bearing, want to make sure I'm prepared. so anyone know what size it is and torque specs?

thanks

According to Quadratec, the socket is a 36 mm. No clue as to the torque specs.

1) Spindle->Knuckle bolts (the six little bolts) 30 ft lbs

2) the hub nuts as follows?:
inner (pin sticking out) @ 50ft/lbs, back 1/8 turn
outer @ 50 ft/lbs

Do not use these numbers. They are for a full floating front end, not the YJ/TJ/XJ/ZJ/WJ/KJ/MJ semi floating dana 30 front end.

[img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] sorry about that, I guess I didn't read the details enough.
Hope I didn't cause too much confusion.

I *might* happen to have a socket! (from working on the old DD "G000le"&amp;Accord). Call me after 9 tonight to remind me to check! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
