Dorman lists two different spindle nuts for the 1991 Cougar.
Both front and rear get 240 ft-lbs of torque.
Both are Type 9, thread M24-2.0, 36mm, height 21mm.
One's black, one's silverish.
Does it matter for the color?
I mean, I need to replace the driver's side front hub (lost TWO studs today - hey, that probably explains the pulling and the vibration!) and have a pair of rear spindle nuts, but none of the front spindle nuts. And the nearest store with stock is 20 miles away ...
Does it really matter?
Does anyone know?
