Nut Size on Driveshaft

I need to replace my carrier bearning and know I will need to take off the yoke by the carrier. I can't find any information on what size that nut is. Just want to make sure I have the right size tools before I start taking everything apart.

On Mustangs they are 13mm 12 point. Probably the same on the trucks.

It looks a lot bigger. Closer to 25-30mm

Use two 13mm sockets and see if that fits, then.

If you have an Advance Auto Parts locally, they should stock the SD manuals (mine does). It will tell you in the book. Wish I could be more help to ya.

I think he is talking about the big nut that holds the yoke to the pinion. Not the 4 bolts that take off the driveshaft.


Its to bad I didn't find this a couple days ago....I just had mine off. I know it is bigger than 19mm.

The four bolts that hold the driveshaft to the pinion flange take a 12mm 12Pt socket.

I recommend thinking twice before you consider pulling the larger pinion flange nut ... your need to get into pinion pre-load if you lossen that nut.

Sorry for digging up an old thread but does anyone know what size that nut is? The only size I found on another forum was 33mm for an '02 truck. Mine is an '04. Are they the same? Thanks in advance.

I have pulled many a pinion flange, without needing to rest preload.
Remove , make your repair , replace .
Pinion has nothing to do with his carrier bearing issue.
