I searched around and could not find a definitive answer.

Are pinion nuts (Dana Applications) just regular fine thread nuts from the hardware store or is there a slight pitch/Thread difference? when I use Grade 8's fromt he store it seems to be rather rough on them and I do not want to continue untill I know the deal. The local parts stores had no clue.

I might have to do that.....

PM me a cost. :thumb:

So does anybody know if there is a thread difference? I'm wondering if its proprietary to the pinion.

use the regular nut and weld it to the pinion when you get it set :finger:

Aha! :finger:

Oh, they stay on just fine but the nuts do take a beating and it has me concerned. I'll keep looking into it....

OK...

Just got off the phone with HBRK and the nuts are different! They have a slightly different pitch to the threads. So a regular 7/8 nuts from the hardware store is not the answer.

I ordered 10 of them. :mrgreen:
