Default Axle hub nut - what size?

Anyone know for sure what size she is on a 99? Ive got a 1 7/16 and 1 3/8. The 7/16 is too big, 3/8 is too small. So its a MM, right, but what size for sure? I dont have any this big so Im going to need to buy one. Would be nice to know what size (Im guessing 35 or 36 since a 1 7/16 = 1.4375 = 36.5mm = too big). Anyone know for sure? Thanks!

Nope. Bought a 36 and its still too big (seems like a 35 might be perfect). Appreciate the help though, guess Ill have to remove the hub cap and take her to the store and try out a few sizes.

I know it's not the right tool for the job, and it is a bit too big, but I've always used my 1 7/16 socket and it torques right up to the correct torque everytime without slipping.

Guys, its definitely not a 36mm.......unless theyre supposed to be loose and slip. The 1 7/16 fit to get it off, but Im afraid of using it to torque it. Again, thanks for the help, I thought it should be a standard size on all but apparently not. Ill let you know what fits when I take her to the store. Just kinda nervous driving that far without being able to torque it to spec.

I repalced one of my unit-bearings and it came witha 35mm nut (aftermarket) threw it away and reused the 36mm... could have aftermarket ***** on in.

With the difference a 1 7/16 made to a 36 and the gap it closed, Im betting it is a 35. the 36 is slightly tighter, but still wobbles. If 36 is the standard size, where would I go about getting the proper nut? Thanks!
