Default Front Wheel bearing help

What size socket do I need to remove the Hub/Drive axle nut for the front wheel bearing assembly ? I've scoured my repair manual but can't find any info on the size socket needed.
1994 Bonneville SE w/ABS.

Might be a 34mm, most likely a 36mm. Make sure you get a socket for wheel hubs, a 6 point, not a 12 point

My 2001 takes either a 34MM or a 1-5/16. They're in a separate section of the auto parts store with the impack sockets.
