Default Is it just me or is it impossible to get castle nuts anywhereother than the dealer?? 93 Integra

Good day,

Perhaps one of you have had the same quest in the past and can offer
guidance... I am looking for the castellated nuts for the lower and upper
balljoints on a 1993 Acura Integra. I have searched high and low and can
only find them included as part of the BJ kits. I donšt want to go to the
dealer because they want something like $8-$12 each which is unacceptable
for me.

Please see the link below for the example of the lower nut I am looking
for:

McMaster-Carr is THE place for just about anything machine shop
related:

Search for 'castle nuts'

They have a range of sizes, materials, grades and finishes.

Why are you replacing the nuts? Because they look old and nasty?

The last time I damaged a castle nut and had to replace it, I found it in
the metric hardware at Ace hardware.

I'm embarassed to tell you that one was lost and one was damaged. I'm
usually much more carefull but recently Murphy and his damn laws have been
getting the best of me. I have the front end fully rebuilt, torqued to
spec, and running fine but...

One of the castle nuts is broken on the top and the other is stripped but
was rethreaded. I figured while I am in there, I would satisfy my piece of
mind and replace all of them (as well as keep extras on hand for future
repairs).

Thanks.
Andrew.

Fastenal, McMaster-Carr and Grainger are all companies which offer that
sort of hardware. These days they are happy to take business from
individuals, and one of more of them may have a retail office near you.
Also, look in your yellow pages for fasteners, industrial. Most
places have shops that carry this sort of thing. Sometimes you will get
lucky at a hardware store, but often not when looking for metric stuff.
