What is the nut size on the end of the front xle and socket size


measure across the flats of the nut and that will be the nut size
so if the dimension is say 1 inch then the nut will be 1 inch and the socket will be 1 inch or 25 mm
most wheel nuts will be 6 sided so although a multi sided socket (12 points) will fit a six sided socket is better it the nut is tightened to high tension

2004 ford explorer tire bushing on front tires, when taken off cant see where to lube them? does anyone know??? Leave me a comment at prbonz71@aol.com


There are no "tire bushings". There is a complete front wheel bearing assembly that if bad, will need to be replaced. There are also no lube fittings on any of these assembly's. You need to remove the entire brake assembly, rotors, calipers, and caliper mount just to get to the nut for the front wheel bearing. Then you have to take cotter pin out of the main nut on the end of the axle, and take off the nut locking nut, you will need a 32mm socket, (if memory serves me correctly) to take the axle nut off. Then there will be 3 bolts on the back side of the axle housing that will need to come out, unplug your electronic brake wire, and the wheel bearing should fall right out.
