    Anyone know if its 35 or 36mm for an '04 4WD 3.4L? There are conflicting reports on various sites that it could be both. The FSM doesn't seem to show it (or I couldn't find it in there).

    All the OEM CV nuts I have seen, dozens and dozens, were 35mm. I have seen some "rebuilt" shafts come with new nuts that were 36mm.

    Ditto here, back when time began all I had was a 36mm and it worked just fine, frankly on that big of a nut it did not seem that loose at all.
