Front Spindle Keyway

One of my keyways is missing from the front spindle. I've tried buying just a keyway but the dealer sells only the entire nut assy and wants about $80.
Does anyone have any other sources to get these? I already posted in the classifieds and am hoping someone has a 96 they are parting out.
Thanks

I don't even see one called out on there. I'm just going by what my repair shop said but now I will investigate this myself and see what is there.
Thanks for the info

yeah dude, find out what exactly it is that you need, lol. There was something called a keystone clamp(??):

but i think its only on the passengers side.Is that where you need it??



Also, working on normal control arms spindle, there is a square hole that looks like a key goes into it (keyway i guess it'd be called), but you don't put a key in there, the washer has a little nipple thing that sticks into the keyway to lock the spindle nut on so it doesn't back out. But i've never worked on a TTB suspension so you might not have one.

As soon as it warms up a little I will check it out. I think your right about the washer having a "nipple" or locking tab. I don't recall a keyway on there the last time I had it apart.
Thanks for the info.
