Sounds like he did, but is wondering if you could make a mistake there.

This wasn't my experience after first doing the VB and then the nuts.

All the VBs '94 and up are the same.

It seems like most people resort to grinding down a standard socket like I did.
And this note from the FSM:

NOTICE: Use a new nut due to insufficient torque retention of old nut. Clean shaft threads with wire brush. When tightening and torquing this nut it must be done quickly. The thread locking material used on the new nut will cure in a short time resulting in incorrect torque."

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
