|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|

its a 1 1/8"
its fine to reuse the nut.
get an impact wrench or a big breaker bar, its gonna be snug
