Default need help with a honda?

I'm trying to change out an alternater on an 86 accord, the only way to get it out is through the bottom, which involves removing the drive axle, to do this I need to remove the rotor, I've got to buy a socket to fit the big nut holding the rotor on, what size do I need to get?

you also need to take the lower ball joint loose from the spindle so you can swing the spindle out of the way and get the axle out.
