I'm going to throw a spanner in the works... I thought they were all 14mm? Been a while since I swung off one though... Feel free to flame... :mrgreen:

like the top ones... we just use a socket on an air ratchet... works fine... Why are you out to buy something special? :/

You'd easily get away with a ROE or offset ring spanner...

Cheers,
Tim

Originally, the factory has blue thread locker on them......so, they may be tight....I use 3/8" drive long handle ratchet....the rears are 15mm heads.....where they mount onto diff assembly.

Well that makes it easy!

I was under the impression they were the bottom type, so i thought i needed to go out and buy the correct bit for it.

Thanks for all the help guys.
