36mm was what I was thinking. I had to replace one on mine and the Autozone website listed it in the axle description. Just looked again and it is 36mm for a 2000. You can rent the socket from them for free. Just pay a deposit and get a refund when you take it back. Also, the torque spec on the nut is 181 ft/pounds. They have torque wrenches too if you need. Mine didn't go that high. The passenger side one says to drain the ATF or else it will leak out. I drained mine, but maybe you could get lucky if you tipped the side up into the air.

Thanks for the replies,Ill pick up a 36mm, Im doing a steering rack and the axles so Ill be replacing the ATF with new Honda fluid, last Saturday I replaced the oil pan gasket, the car is at 226,000 miles, and my wife cant kill it.
I took it down the street for tires and the shop wanted 775 $ to replace the steering rack, and 29$ for an air filter, but they didn't see the oil pan leaking or the bad CV.
