I just bought a 86 DL 4 door sedan which needs rear brakes and wheel bearings. The problem is I can not find the new lock washers for the axle nut any help would be welcomed.

4WD or 2WD? They are very different.

No special tools are required for either type. There is a socket for the 4WD rear bearing retainer ring, but a punch works fine generally.

86Sub, get a 1 1/4" 4 prong socket (used on Ford 4X4 front wheels) at Schucks for $14. Grind off two of the prongs and leave two on opposite sides. Works great for those rear wheels on 4x4 Soobs.

I need to get some of the lock washers before I tear mine apart the next time, too. I hope the stealership isn't the only place they're available. I can only imagine what they want for them!!!
