Default Rear axel nut TSB Question

I have not done this yet to my two ap1s. Will this 3/4 inch bar get the job done?

Yeah although it might break. I'd go-to O'Reilly or AutoZone with a place that has warranty on tools, as your likely to snap it, and they will replace for free if you do. Also 1/2" will be better as most 36mm axle sockets are 1/2". FYI some people have the numbers mixed up and say 225 or something.

It's 180ft lbs, then 60 degrees past - which is closer to 400ft lb. Each point on the nut is 60 degrees.

Hmmm. I recall folks were saying 1/2 inch will break. 3/4" is what is needed. ?? No?

You will snap 1/2" like a toothpick....I broke a very nice 1/2" Matco bar on a friend's car before getting anywhere near the 60*. We used a run of the mill Craftsman 3/4" and it lived with a 6ft fence pole used as a cheater bar. Use a 3/4" socket...you'll end up breaking 1/2" to 3/4" adapter.

I broke a 1/2" to 3/4" adapter. A 3/4" bar won't be an issue- or shouldn't. I used a bar rated to 700 lbft. The bar you reference should survive fine.

good luck

3/4 drive is the proper size tool drive for a fastener of this size.

1/2 is not the tool for this job, period. Yes some have done it and got lucky. But there are tons of broken 1/2 drive tools to read about here.

T-minus a few months to some snapped axle stories.

I am not sure why my mind thought it read 3/8s not 3/4. Do as others suggested.. lol

I saw 3 and immediately brain went to 8... Not 4.. thought I was suggesting bigger. My bad

You can borrow the socket and the breaker bar from Autozone. This is what I did when I swapped axle buckets and did the TSB. You get your deposit back when you return it.
