I need to replace my front wheel bearing hub and I need to pick up a socket for the axle nut. Can someone give me a socket size? I found "35 or 36" in a search but when I measure it it looks like 37 or 38mm.

thanks

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll go with 36mm then.

This will be my third frt lft hub. 151,000m on my '02. 75k must be about the life of these??

I had trouble with parts from Carquest, they replaced one free after 1 year as it seems there supplier had some junk, Napa premium seems to be way better., make sure the axle nut is torqued to specs.
