BADBlue Thanks guys. It's not the first time i have changed it, and i have reused the nut before and have had no problems. Just can't find that socket but now i can pick one up. Thanks again.

jpdocdave it is recommended to replace the nut, the theory is it will lock down only once, and can vibrate and lose torque over time. i've seen a couple out of a great many, come back a little loose, and caused damage to pinion bearing. i always use a little blue thread locker and reuse the nut, and never have a problem

Why is that? It's a locking nut, it will be fine to reuse, especially if you are replacing a pinion seal.
