Are you sure it isn't 12 point? Honda seems to have fallen in love with
those things; it takes a 12 point socket in a standard metric size to remove
them. I admit they do have a good grip that way.

if it requires a special tool, the honda part number will be in the
service manual you can get from helm.com. if, as mike suspects, it's a
standard 12-point nut, you'll be in business with a standard socket set.

beware replacing bent suspension components - bending something that
massive doesn't happen easily, so you need to have the frame of the
vehicle inspected. also get the steering alignment checked after you do
any work. the geometry on all 4 wheels needs to be "just so".
