19mm hex for the front......32mm socket for the rear.

Don't rememember where I orderd it from though it was not more than 20.00 for a 19mm 1/2" drive.

Go get a bolt(with19mm head) and 2 nuts from the hardware store. Tighten the nuts together on the bolt and use the head of the bolt to loosen the axle. Cost about $2.

you can also use a 5/8 standard sparkplug socket...turn it around and put an extension in through the big end, the other end is 19mm, works perfectly and you can use your torque wrench. FREEBIE
