Dizzy Front Drive Shaft Nut Size for Socket

Front Drive Shaft Nut Size for Socket Size

How much trouble is it to remove that nut?

The goal is to be able to yank off the drive shaft on both side to be able to salvage both wheel bearing that are newer on a junk car.

my main worry is to free that nut off and detach the two bolt from the shock and the one from the lower control arm, take off the brake caliper and hopping the CV shaft will free from the bearing and the entire part that hold the wheel bearing/hub assembly will come out free.

A replacement nut from Dorman is 30mm. The OEM nut should be the same.

Default Re: Front Drive Shaft Nut Size for Socket

So I purchased a 30 mm Deep Impact Socket at Princess Auto.
The socket was a wopping $19 , but its Air Gun Rated, that will last a lifetime.
My weapon of choice was my DeWalt 1/2" Impact Gun.
How long it took to get that nut out of there.... less then 10-15 seconds!!!!
It went smoother then buttering my toast in the morning, that is how well it whent!!!!
As fare at the second Bearing I used a Puller, it came out no problem.
As fare as the first Bearing on the driver side, I use Puller, crow bar, hammer, the bible , few curs words, some tequila shots, man I had to shovel the snow out of the car. The first bearing came out into two pieces, the ABS ring felt a part that how bad it was. I also used a 3 Pound Rubber Hammer with some sand in the head. Its really awesome, as you have the weight, but on the moment of impact, it does not bounce and that is really important, not to brake **** up or have it bounce out of control etc!!!!

I used a Propane Torch, as it was -15 C outside with blowing and drifting snow.

Hope I helped you guys in some way and made you smile !!!

May I add, I'm proud of myself, because I did not know how to do it before, it was a learning experience, of course I need to purchase just few extra tools, but it was well worth it!!!

Cheerz !!!
