Hello Everyone,
I am preparing to install axles,hubs,struts and brakes in front ,shocks, brakes on rear. I have done the brakes before, but the other componets, not. I have tried to match up socket sizes to all bolts/nuts involved, and I'm still not certain if they are standard or metric.I want to invest in impact sockets for this job (decent quality) but can only afford one set at this time. Is it possible the bolt head is one kind and the nut another? Thank you , Ed

Should be all metric, except for the wheel lug nut - it's a 3/4 hex.

19mm is an exact fit for the lug nuts.
