      when i done the axle ujoints i took a flat screwdriver and turned it until i could spin it off. they sell replacements from 4wd. also if in a rush napa should have it. also you can pick up the "proper tool" from 4wd, ebay, and i think the zone loans them out. good luck.

        well, nobody in this town loans them out, and if they do, they dont have the right size. sears has a 2 1\8 i might just try that and see if it works

          Not sure if my math skills are failing me or not but if it is between 2" and 2 1/16" wouldn't that make 2 1/8" too big?

              yeah, the 2 1\8 was to big, i new it would be, but it worked better than any other of my options. got it all back together, hubs work great, and bearings are smooth and silent. thanks for the uh..... for reading

                if you live near me, i'll loan it to you.

                wife always says that i have a "tool" that can fix everything.

                    i have a whole set of hub nut sockets. most of the time they take a 6 point socket.
