Any body know the size hex bit I need for the rear differential bushing bolts?

I'm guessing it would be an 11 mm or 12 mm. 10 is too loose, 13 is too large.


Thanks:)

i would guess it is the same size as what is used to drain the diff. i did not have the right size and i just made mine from a 7/16 allen.

I can't remember, but if 11 is too small and 13 is too big then is the 12 for sure.
I doubt you are trying to change the bolts, so a word of advise: Those bushings are not gonna fell into your hands. I hope you know what you are getting into...

I found out that the rear differential bushing bolts take a 12 mm hex bit. With the rust on the bolts, 12mm initially seems too big, however that IS is the size.
