Are you talking about the socket for the spindle nut?

Typical cummins owner.

You need to get a "spindle socket", i cant remember what size it is, but where ever you are buying your parts should be able to tell you what size it is... I think its a 6 pin socket...

My '97 uses the big 2-3/4" spindle nut socket; it's six-sided with rounded corners. I'm using it today. Took me several days of looking in all the local auto parts stores to not find it - finally had NAPA order it for me ~$24 with tax. It uses a 3/4" drive.

BTW, can anyone tell me the torque spec for this front axle spindle nut, and the torqueing procedure? The truck is a '97 F-350, 4WD with automatic locking hubs in front, and single rear wheels in back. Thanks for any assistance.

Been a shade-tree mechanic most of my life, but this is my 1st diesel truck.
