sounds like a justification for more gadgets

if i was closer i would... its 2200 miles atleast round trip. i am just not in a financial position to do such.

that trip would take about 170 gallons of fuel... times that by 3.60 or even 4 bucks and its like 700 bucks!

its the one that holds the hub on. the front D60s are a different style nut than the rears.

meh, the expensive ones you can rent for free. but the hub nuts sockets are essential cause they arent overly abundant...

that is very true. i cant find anyone local with this socket.

you really need a good bearing puller for the carrier bearings. the D60 and D44 the shims are behind the bearings which really sucks.

or you could hone the inner surface of the bearings to an snug fit that you coudl use a brass punch to kick off pretty easily...

Ok... so now I'm confused. I thought a Spindle Nut Socket looked like this.

http://completeoffroad.com/i-122845-...-tlswr-03.html

What's the one you posted for? Or is it just a different type?

They have both styles. More Fords have the style that has the prongs.

that is a front D60, the one i posted is for a rear D60

A front D44 is even different yet i believe.

Pretty sure this is the front 44.

http://completeoffroad.com/i-123447-...4-4-prong.html

I don't have one, but that seems like what would fit. I just used a screwdriver to get my spindle nuts out. Probably will have to pick one up to make sure that they are tight when I install the new ones.
