    We are starting to redo the rear brakes on our '02 F-550. Does anyone know the size of the axle nut on the the dana 135? The guys at napa are of no help and ford hasn't been any better.
    Any help is much appreciated.

    Are you looking for what size wrench needed or the size of the nut itself. It is a 3/4- 16 nut so I would guess that you would need a 1" or 1 1/8" wrench. Or about 27mm.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Kimber, I need the six sided kind of socket. I've been told its 3 1/4" socket so I try to pick one up tomorrow. Thanks for much for the help.

    You might want to try AutoZone for the rotors. There is a huge AZ in Somerville. And the Severe Duty pads are excellent for that application.
