I think the size of the front axle hub nut is 35 mm. Can anyone confirm this?

I hope not I have a 36mm socket I got for mine!

Yup, 35mm.

Edit: Oops, just realized that was the rear. I can't remember if the front was the same. Sorry.

That write up is for the driveshaft not the hub. I believe the hub is 36 mm.

I belive on the books it is 35mm but it is barely 35mm. We used a 35mm and it worked but it was pretty tight . I would prefer to have a 36mm for it.

Thanks everyone. It sounds like I should buy a 36 mm, which works out perfectly since the local Sears carries them but not 35 mm.
