These are measurements for reference when working on suspension and driveline. I'm noting it down so when I get done with front suspension work, I will make a thread posting these for reference for others to use.
- none. Not planning to do anymore work on this Xterra I recently bought. Just want to sell it.
Inner Tie Rod Castle Nut (ITRCN) - 22mm
Outer Tie Rod Castle Nut (OTRCN) - 22mm
Upper Ball Joint Castle Nut (UBJCN) - 22mm
Lower Ball Joint Castle Nut (LBJCN) - 27mm
Lower Ball Joint Lock Nut (LBJLN) - 1 7/8in
Note: Not the castle nut. It's the larger nut that locks the LBJ to the LCA. It's possible to use a adjustable plumber wrench to remove this large nut, but I don't recommend using it to tighten the nut. I also don't recommend using it if you plan to reuse the bolt. I strongly suggest getting a 1 7/8 socket.
Front Upper Shock Bolt (FUSB) - 17mm
Front Lower Shock Bolt (FLSB) - 17mm
Upper Control Arm Nut (UCAN) - 22mm
Lower Control Arm Nut (LCAN) - 22mm
Sway Bar End Link Nut(SBELN) - 14mm
Note: Use either two combination wrenches, or a combination wrench and a ratchet. Use the ratchet to hold the bolt while using the combination wrench to loosen the nut.
Steering Knuckle Brake Sensor Bolt (SKBSB) - 10mm
Hub Lock bolts 6mm Hex (Allen or Socket)
Note: These are the six hex bolts that lock the wheel hub. I used an hex key and a adjustable wrench for extra torque to loosen them up because I don't have it as a socket for my ratchet.
Hub Brake Rotor Bolt (HBRB) - 14mm
Note: these are the 6 bolts that attach the hub to the brake rotor.
Steering Knuckle Brake Mounting Bolt (SKBMB) - 7/8
Note: These are the two bolts that connect the brake mount and caliper to the knuckle.
