Hub Socket

I am getting ready to do rotors and can't seem to locate a 52mm hub socket anywhere. Will a standard 6 point 52mm socket work?

Don't want to pull it apart until I know I have the right socket.

Thanks,

Adam

a six-point 52mm socket is fine, but most of those come in a 1-in drive, which is pretty inconvenient. I ordered one from dingocroft in the UK since so I could get a 1/2-in drive - so I could either use a torque wrench or an impact wrench depending on my needs...

I think a 2 1/16 -in socket also works as well. They're kinda hard to find though.

I can get a 52mm socket but I didn't know if it would work. Now I need to check on the drive size.

2 1/16th is the SAE cross over size but equally hard to find.

THANKS for the quick reply.

Adam

If you order a LR tool, make sure you don't get the disco II/p38 socket. Its different.

They are around $20 or less from Atlantic British... I would think a normal socket will be too thick to fit in the hub.

Just ordered from Atlantic British for $20. It uses a screwdriver in the end so I won't need a 1 in. driver.

Thanks all!

I have one that you can have. I don't need it anymore (yay!!).

If you can't find one let me know.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Good to know I guess. I wouldn't have thought one would have fit. There's not much room.
