They should not be too tight since the metal piece you bend to lock it in place. I just used a flat head screwdriver to knock it loose but it does put a divot in the side. It is a lot easier with a 54 mm socket especially when you are setting the wheel bearing preload.SOR sells the 54 mm sockets.

Mace is right-I see no use for that tool on a Land Cruiser front axle. Go to Sears, get a 2 1/8 socket, be happy. Better yet get an official Toyota one-about $25.

Someone mentioned the SOR hub socket. It sucks. It is the crappiest POS ever. It works about 3 times but slowly the "points" of the socket round out. Normally everything you get from SOR is first rate, but that hub socket is an exception.
