Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I am needing to change the ball joints on my 97 jeep grand cherokee. I need to know what size axle nut is on this as well as the e-torx on the back side.
My socket set goes to 1-1/4": and 36mm.
my e-torx kit has all sizes, one can need.
with no sets. you must measure them. it's not covered in the FSM.
only 175ft/lbs on the axle nut and need for a torque wrench that big.
the better question is ,is the axle nut SAE or metric.
most real Chrysler built are metric.
so that big nut, at that torque needs 1/2' drive
and the torque wrench to match.
id bet this covers that
you could off the hub cap and measure the nut, with a metric rule.
the external torx same. with a caliper measure the head.
then use the e-torx table to mach it.
bet the first ever to post that. its rare to ask.
most folks just have the 2 sets. ( a life time investment if ever there was)
here is the table i uses, if ever
good luck working with only 2 bits.

Testimonial: "The sockets for the axle nut are $15 a piece or $80 for the set. So purchasing only the one that I need is economics period. I did find a set of E-torx for a reasonable price. So on that note was hoping that the E-16 was big enough. I am sure it is and is likely the 12 or 14. Thing is I will have the only vehicle available to go get anything in pieces. So ensuring I have the correct tools before starting the job saves a lot of taking apart and putting back together."
