OEM Brass nylon lock nut
What do you guys replace them with? $1.37 for one nut is just nuts, lol. I tried a zinc coated lock nut from Lowe's and the thing striped and the nylon popped out when torqueing to 18 ft lbs. I ended up temporarily reusing the old one's. I cleaned the crap out of the threads on the nuts and studs and used blue loctite.

I get SS ones at a local hardware store.

If you think $ 1.37 is high for that nut, you might want to get another hobby. Use a SS nut, lock washer, and flat washer.
