Track Bar Bolt 2006

Hey guys. Need some help here. I started installing my 2.5" leveling kit on my 06' 4x4 when I ran into a snag. I don't have the correct metric socket to remove the driver size track bar bolt. Does anyone know what size socket I need to buy? Also, I read that several guys here used breaker bars to loosen the bolt...if I can get my hands on an impact gun with enough torque, would that be ok to use? Thanks.

OK thanks, I knew it was in between a 1 1/8 and 1 1/4. I thought it was a metric size I needed. It seems most of the fasteners on these trucks are metric. What the hell?

Yeah, 1 1/4 was a bit too big, I just used a 24" pipe wrench and managed not to mangle the nut that badly.
