I would please just like to know what size the axle nut, or wheel bearing, hub assembly nut is? And is it a deep well? And would a 6 point socket be recommended. Thank you. Also, sorry, what is the torque on this nut so when I put it back on? Thank's again.

36mm. I would suggest a 6 point socket for it because they are less likely to strip the nut. You are going to be putting a lot of torque on it and need as much grip as possible. 159 ft lbs torque. I doubt they come in more than one depth. They sell the sockets at AutoZone for approx $10.00.
