...It does not come with a socket..

...Borrow one from Autozone if you need to for the auto hubs...At the same time you can purchase the socket for the manuals from autozone for about 14 bucks...;)

When I bought the kit it did NOT come with the big socket.. Most autoparts chains carried it though.. its easy to find.

...Where in northern Cal. are you???

...I know Autozone has them in stock in their tools section, even though they say they don't have them...The socket say's it's for a 93-94 Explorer on it...When I looked at my local Pepboy's, Kragen, and Napa, they said it was special order only..But they may have a loaner...:dunno:

My local Checkers/Kragen/Shucks has them for sale cheap (manual hub socket).. I've borrowed tools from them before, just not that tool. You actually buy them and then return the tool.. its not just "any" tool, they have certain tools they rent..

Its the same tool for any 1/2 ton ford, chevy, or jeep as well.

If you can, get the one with a ring that goes around the 4 stubs, and not the one that has them sticking out.

You ought to just buy the socket to have on hand. You may be back in the hub to repack or change bearings. Especially if you do any wet off-roading.

And don't buy the special "conversion" kit. Just ask for the spindle nut kit for the Dana 44 FORD(2 spindle nuts, 1 with a nipple, 1 without, and a lock washer)You should pay about half as much. They are the same(35 &44).
