Replacing the rear axle nut

So apparently after 3-4 times of taking off the axel nut on my 02 zx3 im supposed to replace the axle nut. I know its 30mm but i cant seem to find the replacement part anywhere. Am I missing something or is there a universal one I should use?

It's designed as a special lock nut that can only retain torque after so many removal and reinstallation cycles. I believe Ford says it can be reused twice with replacement on the third removal. Check with Tousley Ford for some of the best online prices for Ford Parts.
