Yes. They should both be 32mm's if I understand your question correctly.

If you have em both there try threading the nut on . It shouldn't be any different thread or size. There the same.

You should replace the nuts every time.

If you do reuse them make sure to torque it down properly and stake the nut or your bearings will fail in no time. I recently had to replace a hub/spindle/axle because the nut I reused multiple times didn't stake properly and loosened up over time which let the bearing separate and eventually damage surrounding parts.

You should never loosen or tighten the axle nut with the weight of the vehicle on the wheel. The specs vary depending on year and model even though they are of the same design but they are usually around 115. I suggest at least 130 personally.

how big of a pain in the dick will it be to loosen the axle nut? im also changing the whole hub assembly so how hard will it be to pull out my old ****? like the long bolt that holds the spindle to the control arms and the spindle to the struts. im just doing the rear.
