I think the super glue will not solve the issue. Once it hardens it becomes very brittle. Once you apply torque, the glue is broken. Something flexible, like a dab of RTV might be a better choice if the super glue doesn't work out. Or spring $20 for a set of the American Muscle lug nuts: http://www.americanmuscle.com/chrome...-lug-nuts.html

Quality is ok, avoid impact use on them. Firestone Tire Monkeys used an impact and the wrong size socket and chipped the chrome on mine. A year later, they are rusting. I'll buy another set though.

Ehhh, you are probably right. I was just getting pissed off at how many of the caps that I was losing when going down the road. If it doesn't work, will either buy a whole new set or just snag a few from the JY like I said.

Are those American Muscle Lugs Solid? I have tons of air tools and I frequently use the impact gun and then finish them off with a torque wrench... =/

Solid as in "burly" or solid as in "not hollow"? The answer is "somewhat" and "yes". I use my impact driver all the time on them with no issues. I'm sure the issue with the chrome was the wrong sized tool being used. After my alignment and tire rotation, they were all chipped to crap by Firestone Monkeys. I noticed right away because it came back with the tie rod and track bar jam nuts (the big 1-1/2" JKS nuts) all looser than finger tight and it was clunking badly on my way home.

Sorry about that, solid as in "one-piece". So from what you said, there is no cap. Well that is a plus. Wonder if they used a 3/4 inch socket? Oh, well that is good, I will bookmark that link. Should I get blue lug nuts??? ( that was sarcasm, as it does not always transfer well through text.)

Well I do hate to bother you all on stuff such as a whine or a noise. But I thought I would through it out there. It is a lower-pitched humming noise from the rear end. Probably rear axle.
  • Heard the most at highway speeds
  • can be heard at lower speeds as well but mostly at highway.
  • does not seem to change intestivy much with speed.
  • noise is only present under load, i.e. cruising or accelerating
  • If I let of the gas, it is goes away
  • happened to hear it AFTER I went wheeling and filmed that video
  • lower-pitched humming sound

Yeah, no caps. Just one solid nut. They take a 13/16" socket. Since the OEM wrench no longer fits, I got a folding 4-way lug wrench from Le Freight du Harbuer for $8.99 and stuck it under the seat with the jack.

Psh, dang it, I just bought a Kobalt 19 MM socket. I think I will just grab some more from teh JY if need be. I love Harbour Freight.

IIRC I want to say "no" but I will out again tomorrow running around and will listen for that. If it helps, doing 55 or 80 on the highway and it still sounds the same.

Mine will do that. Only at highway speeds... most noticeable when very lightly on the gas holding speed... but never when accelerating hard. I've been told its just the D35 being silly. Replacing the pinion bearing seems to be the "cure" but its not a dire problem in most cases. Mines more of a whine than a hum though. Any vibrations associated with it?

Mine gets a bit louder, ever so slightly doing 80 or so but more or less sounds exactly the same. Why are you buying kobalt tools?! Okay well I do kind of like them and they're good for individual use but Harbor Freight hand tools have never failed me and they also have a somewhat hidden and not talked about lifetime warranty on almost all of em.

It is most notice on the highway and "cruising" the engine noise takes care of the rest. Stupid D35, need a 44a. That sounds expensive... =/ I am not putting any more money in the 35... I should have not even wasted any money on the Axle seals. It is just ANNOYING. No vibes.

Kobalt isn't anything fancy, the same as harbour freight tools. Lowes is 10 min away, and harbour freight is 50 min away.

Well I am not so sure about that. I bent/broke my HF socket... i.e. had to buy a new one (Kobalt)

I was using my torque wrench on my shock bolts... I was using a SAE? (not metric) socket on them, so it was not an exact fit (Did not have any 1/2 drive metric sockets, and lowes was out of 1/2 to 3/8 drive adapters today). So it tore up the socket but did not do any damage on the bolt...
