1984 bronco II
hi, couple of days ago I bought an 84 xlt bronco 2. The poor thing's falling apart so I really wanna get back into good condition. Breaks are worn, but before I can change the rotors I need to get the spindle lock nuts off. from what I could figure, the lock nut's diameter is about 2 1/4 inches, I coudn't get an EXACT measurement since the spline shaft is in the way.

doing some research online - http://cache01.voyageurweb.com/otctools.com/products/2006catalog/pg155-159AutoSpec.pdf - it would appear that the specialty socket I'm looking for is actually the 2 3/8. which has me pretty confused, could someone with a stock (or near stock) 84 bronco 2 clear this matter for me?

what size spindle nut socket do I need? Thanks in advance for the help

Auto matic hubs you want 2 and 3/8
On manual hub you need ford part #T83T-1197-A, spanner wrench
As per 1984 Ford Bronco shop manual

thanks for the help rookieshooter, though the only part code I could find is T83T-1197-B.
I appreciate your response, this definitely helps me narrow down the search :thumbsup:
