Why do you need a new nut? If the yoke broke, the nut should be able to still be used. I used a 1 1/16" I think and my socket was not a thin wall and it worked just fine. You might need a breaker bar with a cheater if it has been on there from the factory. It's tight!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
It was 1 1/8th. It was pretty tuff going on. Went on a bit easier after warming it up and smacking it with the the 5lb sledge. Of course there was a piece of wood between the sledge and the yoke. I'm finding the driveline on this truck is leaving much to be desired.
So far I've replaced both yokes, rebuilt the 5spd, replaced all the ujoints everywhere some a few times and now the front driveshft has developed considerable slop in the slip joint section.
I hope at least thats the last time I drop a shaft in the middle of an intersection with an on coming gravel truck lined up to the drivers door.
