Can't get the right socket, needing help

I am putting new rotors & calipers on my truck and I can't for the life of me find the right socket to get the nut (not sure what else to call it) off the spindle. it has 4 grooves in it. I've bought 3 different specialty sockets that all say they fit 95 & up 3/4 ton ford 4wd pickups but none of them will work. It seems like they are too small. I bought two with the prongs on the inside and one with the prongs on the very end. Does anyone have any answers?

Just bought one today as I needed to replace driver's side U joint. Oreillys Performance Tool #w83010 for Ford Dana 50 IFS and Dana 60 1985-1/2 to current for $19.99. 1/2" drive 4 lug spindle nut wrench. It only fits on one way. So spin it around until it fits the 4 holes.

Yeah, I end up breaking it loose w/ a screwdriver and then just spinning it off both sides. I took one of the nuts back to autozone and found one that would fit it. It was right beside the one I bought. Both said they would fit 95-up F250's 4WD. Thanks for the help though
