All you have to do is explain to the parts guy what vehicle you are working on they will have the vehicle specific socket available.
Expert:  Shawn replied 6 years ago.
There is no specific size only the option of what vehicle you are working on (see diagram below) the tools below are available at Auto Zone

how long the bearings should last my truck only had 36000 miles
Expert:  Shawn replied 6 years ago.
HiCustomer




Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. That is very low mileage, you should at least expect to get around 50-60,000 miles at least.
