    Question '94 Deville wheel hub bolt size?

    I was going to change my wheel hub this morning, but I don't have a torx bit that big. What size is it? T55?
    Also, I would like to replace the torx bolts with allen head bolts, since I absolutely hate torx bits! Does anyone know the thread size?

    Thanks!

    Re: '94 Deville wheel hub bolt size?

    Well I found the answers to my questions, and just incase someone in the future needs to know, the Torx bits that hold the front wheel hub on are T55.
    I've decided to replace the Torx bit head screws with socket head cap screws. Since I hate Torx bits, and the Cadillac dealer wants $4.25 a piece for them! You need to get socket head or torx because of the clearance to get a bit in there to torque them. There's no room to get a regular hex head socket on there.
    The thread size is 12mm 1.75 pitch and the screw length is 43mm. I had a hard time finding this size, since Home Depot and other local hardware stores don't sell them that big in socket head. I found them at Fastenal, but they must be bought in a box of 25 for around $18. They only sell either 40mm or 45mm, and since this one needs to be 43mm, I will use a flat washer to make up the difference. I'm not sure if the bolt holes into the spindle are blind or not, but if they are the flat washer will make sure I don't bottom out the bolts!

    Good luck!
