View Full Version : Replacing front hub

Just confirmed the hub is the problem with our SVS, TRAC and ABS lights (plugged it in while old one still on car). Can anyone tell us the nut size for the axle shaft? We need to pick one up. Thanks!

36 mil. I did it two weeks ago. It'll save you a lot of time and frustration to have an impact wrench for the bolts holding the hub on. They're on the back, and kinda hard to get at, so when you pull on a ratchet, the socket slips off the side. At least, thats what happened to me. WD40 is now your best friend lol

if your in need of a good penetrating lube, PB Blaster is about as good as they come. WAY better than standard WD IMO. Ive heard Royal Purples stuff is king, but i havent used it yet. And its about twice the price for half the product.
