It is 8mm 12 point. I couldn't get the snap on nuber because it was worn too bad. But most tool companies will have it. Make sure when you take off the axles you tap the socket into the axle bolt a little with a hammer so it's in the whole way. Otherwise it'll strip out easy. And it's not easy to get oput once it strips. good luck
