36mm socket for the axle nut, 12pt 13mm socket for the 3 unit bearing-to-knuckle bolts IIRC.

92 XJ -> 96 ZJ -> 04 WJ -> 15 JK

What Jeep - WJ? 36MM. The axle shafts will come out without having to remove this nut or the hub......... HOWEVER, depending upon your axle, the CV joint may not be servicable and you will have to remove the hub as you will have to replace the entire axle shaft as a unit.

just replace the whole axle, after the boot is torn most cv's are already dead.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Which means the joint is going to blow up sooner than later. You can wait till it does, or you can be proactive, but the joint probably can't be saved.

2003 WJ in Jeep Green Metallic, 4.0/242/4.10's. 4" Teraflex springs w/ RE monotube shocks and IRO short arms, cheap intake w/ amsoil filter, 2.5" hi flow cat and back exhaust, lots of lights and other misc crap.

Where'd you get the axle from? Most aftermarket shafts i.e. Autozone, Advance Auto, O'Reilly's come with a "lifetime warranty". See if you can return it and get a new one (you can forget to tell them you ripped it while offroad)

I'd replace the axle, and if they won't warranty it, keep it as a spare incase u snap one on the trail.

Also, for future reference - the original Chrysler shafts use a 36mm, the modern replacements sometimes use a 35mm.

Ask me how I know. I bought the 35mm socket along with the replacement shaft. Went to go pull the original and of course the socket didn't fit. So I said screw it and got a replacement bearing assembly as well and the shaft is still in the old bearing...
