    After much researching I have found that I need a spindle nut socket. Which looks like this.

    it would fit into the back of here to take off this spindle nut. if my mechanic jargon is on point
    the arrows points to the placement of the nipples from the socket.

    Sorry I cant help, good luck finding one. Looks like that nut has a crush point which the factory prob did to prevent it from loosening. Be careful loosening which could damage threads.

    I got a hold of a MatCo tools dealer but the soonest he can get me the tool is late afternoon.
    that crush point was a B@TCH. If you look closer at that pic. you'll see a small piece of metal that the tip of a screw driver got logged in there. so it loos like its flush enough to crank that nut off. If not then DAMN I'm F#CKED lol, cause i have no idea how to get this bearing out and I can't put the spindle knuckle back on with that screw driver tip in there.

    If you have two punches about the same size of them holes and use a long pry bar wedged between the punches to see if it will budge

    lol Tried that. Wouldn't budge at all.
    I've also found out that it requires about 203 ft/lbs from a torque wrench

    Sorry I wasen't able to help. had a wedding to attend.

    I was thinking you could use the punch method but 200ftlbs is bit to try and loosen.

    Maybe set 2 punches and a bar and hit the bar with a small sledge? May cay cause more harm than good..
