Stephen, just a reminder. The old and new nuts are not interchangeable. The thread diameters are the same but the pitch is different. Original nuts are 32mm, later GKN shafts 36mm. Replace like for like.

Good luck

John

Fitted a pair of these last Friday, along with drop links, took me 4 hours total Inc cleaning away, look good quality and a damn site cheaper than the timken ones, so I'm happy and my car sounds silent (or quieter, 😁) And couldn't work out which side it was, so did both and it was passenger side had collapsed and drivers side drop link had snapped!
Thanks AF for the quick delivery

Can the new style nut be re-used?

Side note - I put a new style n/s driveshaft on mine and the bloody 36mm socket does not fit through the centre bore of the alloy wheel!

What is the best technique for torquing up a 36mm new style nut? Wheel off, nuts on threads and torque against a lever? Or is there a 36mm socket that will fit through the centre of the wheels? or something else?

Cheers,

Andy

Just a reminder. The recommended torque for the hub nut has been reduced to 230Nm, in order to increase the life of the bearing.
