Always the answer.

Are they the only place?
the one's they sell at Sears or Canadian tire would not fit?

Fyi - i stopped by canadian tire and picked up 36mm masterctaft made socket. I just tried it ant fits the hub nut. So this will be used to assist me to do this maintenance work.

Just to add, i got my bearing s with hubs (2) for about 140.00 us shipped front blunttech. He has them on sale. Check it out if you're looking for a set.

CT or princess auto - if they don't fit, grind'em down!

The grinding was a PITA for me. I got a thin wall online.

sb_600 06-13-2013 02:34 PM

yeah, i used a bench grinder which worked VERY well - by hand (with a grinder) i can envision the sucakge.

I bought a Princess Auto socket 3 months ago for this exact job and it fit perfectly.
