I am doing the axels. I need a 54mm socket, ideally 3/8" drive .
I've ordered two online and they stuck in "pending" so I'm not sure they will ever ship.
Thanks

Anyone ever IDs one that doesn’t suck, would love to know about it. I’ve got two, one slightly less bad than the other.
 
cheap metal? I don't think they are high torque.
Might be unavoidable - which is why I stopped buying after the second one. They slip easily, but it might be that they just can’t get much purchase on the lock nuts given their depth and little/no space behind them to get deeper in the socket.
 
 
2 1/8 inch works. Easier to find in short notice. Sears always had them on shelf

You still have Sears in your area?!?

HAD being the key work in that sentence. Still much easier to call around and find a 2 1/8 on short notice.
 
Caution, with some 2-1/8" sockets, the wall thickness is quite significant as they assume you're torquing something to hundreds of ft-lbs :D You may have to grind the exterior OD in order to get it to fit inside the Land Cruiser wheel hub housing.

I wish I would have known. I’m rebuilding everything inner axels, CV … took forever to compile everything but it’s here.

We’ll, if you need anything else, keep us in mind.

Much appreciated!
