Dana 80 hub removal

I was upgrading my rear wheel cylinders to the bigger chevy 3500 cylinders today and noticed that there was a rather severe oil leak coming from the passenger side axle/hub. I pulled the drum off and everything was coated in 80w90. I decided to try and replace the oil/axle seal so I could have a functional brake again but when I removed the axle I saw that the hub retaining nut is a ~2-5/8" nut...where can I get a socket to remove this nut? I went out and bought a socket from tractor supply but it would not fit in the opening.

Also, any exploded diagrams or other information would be appreciated.

quite simple
napa or any other shop sells these sockets and you should have one in your tool box with the application of the socket marked in junk yard pen on the side so you remember which truck it fits
kd tools sells them otc tools sells them and many others do too.
its a must have

now is a fine tome to replace both seals and to clean the hub out and then convert to synthetic gear oil in the rear axle.

Some shops even rent them. As written above, best to buy one.

Sometimes I hate how much information can vary on these sites, and I dont think its anyones fault but I did this job last week and it requires a 2-1/2" socket that i got from napa. My jumbo socket set wouldnt fit in the hub so I had to buy the special one.

My fsm was the first place I looked for the socket size and all it had was the dodge service part number...aka useless to us diy-ers.

thanks for the quick responses. I'll be running over to napa tomorrow to see if I can get one.

now...can anyone give me the part numbers for the seals I'll be replacing? I want to replace the seal between the axle tube/housing and the hub as well as the seal between the axle shaft flange and the hub. I looked on several auto part stores websites and couldn't really find anything...

I used napa part # 28754. This product is an improved product over stock. It has a better seal design and if installed correctly should last the life of the truck. btw that part number is for 3/4 ton's. If you have a dually you need the one for 3.5" brakes not 2.5".
