Yup, the RN/LR hub tool has no spots for 1/2" drive.
And I did need to use a 3 foot breaker on my rear inner hub nuts (the ones next to the spacer) just last week. It sucked. Don't know why it required that as everything was clean and lubed.
Also, cruiseroutfitters.com carries a hub nut 1/2" drive tool that fits our application as well as many cruisers. It is a but cheaper than buying a full blown socket.
