front hub nut size?

what size is the front hub nut on a d90?
I'm talking about the one inside the drive member?

if you have a rovers north catalog it's part number RNH006...
I need to pick one of these up to do a rebuild and haven't pulled apart the old one, I need to go buy a lock ring remover so i may as well pickup the "hub nut remover" as well, I don't know what the real name for those flimsy pieces of sheet metal, but i know a real socket that size is unlikely to fit inside the hub assembly.

Thanks for any input!

Hey,

You have to buy one specifically for this application. I found a cheap one made by Allmakes 4x4, part number 606435. Its real name is a hub nut spanner. I can't remember where I got it, but it was only $12 or so.

hub nut spanner, who would have thought... I guess there's no chance of finding one local on my way home from work then...

Thanks for the info, I know the nut is probably something like 2+ inches

Not sure if there is a crossover to another make or not. I don't know the size but if you want I can put a caliper on it and get real close.

2-1/16" - the heavy duty one from Atlantic British works well

You could use a large set of channel locks in a pinch.

I know, but i've torn up my dana 44 doing this, i'd rather just buy the right tool, i'm sure this won't be the last time i'm doing this.

I got a cheap 52mm from a local auto parts store. These nuts aren't torqued on very tight, so these hubs nuts are just sheet metal. The store had several sizes of these "truck hub nut" sockets.

These also fit ALL Jeeps to 1985 and all Scouts. It used to be the hub nut size for small 4WDs......
