Question

I have a 4x4 and I am repairing the front brakes myself. I need to know what size socket to use and what size nut is on there. I don't have the money to buy the whole set of either. Thanks

    You should be good with a 3/8 inch drive rachet and a 1/4 inch torque.

    can be either a 32mm, a34mm, or 36mm no matter what the year. Also the torque spec for the nut is 192 lbs/ft.
