    YOU MIGHT GET MORE ANSWERS IF YOU PUT SOME MORE INFO THE TITLE OF YOUR POST. NOT JUST HELP. I SAW YOUR "HELP" POST THOUGHT YOU WERE STUCK OR ACTUALLY NEEDED HELP.

    no flames, just frustration, I had to farm out this job to a shop, never had to have someone else work on my stuff. I just had surgery a few months ago and not up to speed yet My truck needed a hub bearing, now they have it apart and tell me that they don't have the correct socket to torque it down. so instead of waiting for them to dig up one I figured I would get it myself. the flames are between them and me . not you, didn't mean to "RUB" you the wrong way ! LOL !

    I would have went to them for the socket but I live in the middle of the Hoosier National Forest and there very S. L. O. W. getting things done here, It may have taken a week to get it ! ordered it through Amizon, it will be here Wednesday. hopefully they will get it finished by Friday.
