    I was going to suggest squirting a crapload of WD40 in there, waiting 15 minutes, rotating it 180 degrees, squirting some more, and then waiting a half hour. But it sounds like you did more or less something like that. Good deal!
    When I reassembled mine after replacing the struts, I did use anti-seize. we'll see how well that stuff stays in there. Does copper rust? I'm a little concerned it will make it worse than just using silicone grease or something. (shrug)

    I'll fix the nut size later when I get to a computer.

    Scoundrel,
    I squirted wd40 in as lori rotated the other rear wheel.
    It worked, but out of sequence for me. In future that will be my first step.
    Copper doesn't have the iron in its compound to rust, so should be ok. I put some grease in it cuz that is what I had.
    Your tool list was great. But as a machinist, and deal with mm alot, I convered the 27, and since 1-1/16 isn't as common as 1-1/8 I understood. But I feel that will or could round the retainer nut if that is what someone has. And since your how to`s are really good I guessing that the size thing was something I did know!
    27 mm = 1.0629"
    1-1/16" = 1.0625"
    1-1/8" = 1.1250"

    I figure it's a guideline, and people are gonna use whatever they have, or go get the right one if they're worried about it.
    I've used the 27mm on those front axle nuts a LOT, what with torn CV boots and broken struts, with an impact wrench, and they show no signs of rounding. They're pretty hard nuts.
