The largest socket I have is 1" but it is not impact type. I did try to physically fit that one but it is too small.

I did a search for Harbour Freight, but the closest one is in Kalispel USA. With shipping and cross border fees into Canada it would be more efficient to purchase the socket locally. Thanks for the tip though!

Yes, Canadian Tire website does list having them there. There are several stores in Calgary so grabbing one there should be convenient.

Yes a trip to Montana would be nice, but for a tour instead of only getting a socket, haha.

Don't forget the Powerfister, Princess Auto.
They have both deep and shallow...impact sockets.

Yeah, that Princess place sounds better. A Deep socket may be needed to clear the axle.

Actually the first place I went was Princess Auto, but the location I had gone to before was gone and building empty.
