Rear Wheel Bearing adjustment....

So, I have a 900 that thinks it's a 99....1980 turbo 5-door....plenty of two year goofiness, unless it's carried over from a 99 turbo, and then it's 3 year only goofiness....unless it's shared with 99, and then it's just older than most 900 owners care to know about.

My 80 900 turbo has adjustable rear wheel bearings, and the skirted nuts which are used to hold their adjustment appear to be a single use item. Where do I find replacement nuts, or is there some sort of update/upgrade that I should be looking to do to make the car more serviceable.

I put the question out on the 900 Post list, but haven't gotten a response...

Thanks for the help!

yup, the whole axle from an 81-87 car, bolts in, and has wheel bearings that virtually never wear out. I wouldnt bother messing with those bearings if i were you...
