I just took my differential out of the axle housing, and a handful of the nuts got destroyed in the process (they had suffered rock hits, messing up the threads on the studs, which actually caused one of the nuts to split).
Anyone have a half dozen or so of them that they'd be willing to share? I can't find anything similar locally.
They're locking type nuts and 3/8-24 size with slots on the top and a recess on the bottom. They're not castle nuts for use with cotter pins.

I've looked at multiple places, and they have lock nuts, but not that particular design. I'd like all 10 nuts to look the same. I did find a couple on the parking brake hardware today, and swapped those for standard nuts and lock washers. Still short one nut on the differential.
