Need hex size - Dodge axle preload tool

Recommended Posts

Anyone know the size of the hex for a Dodge axle preload tool? Thanks.

not sure the size but I do know its the same size as the hex on the torsion bar on the dodge dakota.

I did a quick google search and it looks like you buy the tool pretty cheap

Thanks, but I saw all of that info. I made them before with just scrap metal and I don't want my van (business) tied up too long. I just needed the size which NONE of the forums have. I'm going to go reply to all those old threads with the correct size! 👍

Anyway, I'm on the right track. I got a 1 5/16" hex nut that doesn't fit through so I plan on tapering the flats until it fits then measuring once and for all. I think 1 1/4" will do it. Come to think of it, the axle nut on my KX is that size, maybe I'll see if that fits.
