Yeah those big Dodge's have some beefy parts on them.

The rear axle spindle sockets are avaiable at NAPA's etc. that deal with shops doing more of the heavy service work.

My Dodge has a air brake R300 Timken axle with 7" wide block shoes.

As I recall it used the six point 4" socket shown.

I have another Q300 and I think it used the other 3-3/4" socket shown...not positive though.

You need to use those sockets for sure....you don't want the drum and axle coming out!

Next week I'll measure the 6 point nut with a caliper to get the size. It looks 4". The regional fire apparatus mechanic may have these actually. 

 

Still trying to track down these "lever pressure retainers". I'm gonna stop in a Fleetpride here and ask. Otherwise I wonder if the axle stamped code will help more than the dodge book. Calling White Post is my plan C haha.
