I just replaced my driver side u-joint last Friday. Here is a link that may help, http://www.pavementsucks.com/tech/hub.php From what this says it is a 1 11/16 I ended up using a 1" 3/4 6 point. Not the best fit but it did work without rounding off the nut. The worse part of the whole project was trying to get the hub out. I finally got $issed and used a sledge hammer to get it out. I figured if I trashed the hub I would just replace it. The hubs are $147.00 a piece. Well the hub was fine. The local parts store sandblasted the u-joint area and installed the new joint for $15.00. (well worth the money. The greasable joint was $27.00.

p.s. you do NOT need to remove the 1" 11/16 nut to get the axle out.

Yeah you dont have to pull the nut off to pull the shaft. You can just pull the hub, which you will have to do anyways. Its just easier to to remove the nut and pull the hub bearing off the stub to press out the ujoint.
