Hub Nut Socket Size

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

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.

That is the way with many vehicles, 35mm is often real tight (especially if there is some rust on the nut), and 36mm is easier to fit on.

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.
