    Hey guys, I am planning on replacing the driver's side hub bearing tonight and need to grab the right size socket. I have seen 35mm and 36mm mentioned. Does anyone know whether the hub nut on the 2006 1500 4x4 is 35 or 36mm?

    Thanks!

    what size socket for hub bearing nut

    Its a 36mm. They can be tough the first time off so try to use a good socket, those cheap ones will split or round off. Snap-on socket works good.

    It was actually a 35mm but luckily with a little persuasion (aka hammer) a 1 3/8" will fit too!
