'i have a walkthrough ut I have never done it before and I need the big socket, this is on my daily driver so I don't want to mess it up I have a couple of days that I can do it if anyone around new castle wants to help out. I can buy the beer :) I am busy this weekend with the carbondale mountain fair but can do some nights after that or the next weekend.

They are not hard, you should have no trouble.

A 2-1/8" socket is pretty easy to find and works fine.

Sears usually has them in stock ... If you're looking at a parts store, it might be in metric - 54 mm

Did you look for the 2-1/8"?

You're only applying something like 40 ft-lbs ... never had any problems with the "inch" version.

Probably - for $2.99 what do you have to lose?
