Axle nut socket size?

Doing the brakes on my 78 CJ7 and need the proper tool to remove the rotors and bake assemblies. Anyone know what size socket I need for this?

2 3\32 inch some will say 2 1\8, make sure it is a true spindle nut socket, a wide walled socket will not usually work

They're pretty cheap if you order from the 4x4 catalogs. Like 8 bucks.

I've been told 2 3/32 and 2 1/16. I used the 2 3/32 I got from NAPA. I also went ahead a got the other one and put both in my trail tool box.
