I need to change the wheel hub assembly on the Drivers side of my 1995 Ford Mustang 3.8L V6 and I was wondering if anyone knows what size that center Nut is to remove the Hub from the spindle? I would rather not buy a whole socket set when I probably won't use that big of ones again.

Secondly I need to change the balljoints on the same car both sides. Anyone have any suggestions or tips on how to do them? Never done balljoints before, I know I have to press them out and back in, but as far as what all has to be disconnected from the car to get the balljoint out? Thanks for the info.

This is a general idea of how to replace a ball joint on a Ford product


As to the spindle nut size, some auto parts stores have sets of sockets that they will rent or just measuring the nut with a steel tape will be close enough. 36 mm is a common size. The spindle nut will probably need to be removed with the wheel in place and sitting on the ground using either a long breaker bar or air tools.

36mm socket.
Might as well do both sides as well. Hub assembly is cheap enough. I've seen them anywhere from 40-65 bucks, from ford.

They should come with a new hub nut. Only use the new one, and torque to 250lbs. Its Uber tight.
