what tool do I need to remove the spindle nut on a 4x4 1996 Bronco?
None of the normal tools I've used work on it?


oddly obsessed with big scoops on little Mustangs

You will need the correct 4 prong spanner socket. Napa should have it in stock. This will be the smaller of the two sockets. The bigger socket is for 3/4 and 1 tons. If they are manual hubs, there will be two spindle nuts, and if they are automatic it should have one. Ford had a few different designs though. Good luck. Jason.

You can use the special tool, or just find a screwdriver that fits in the slot and push it in the slot, and make sure it catches the splines for the lockout and use the hub as a "wrench" sort of speak. I used to do that before I had the right tool.
