View Full Version : Studs

I bought 1/4" wheel spacers to eliminate the shaving of aluminum off of my Panasports at the upper A arm. I've already ground as much metal as I am comfortable grinding off of the arms.
I purchased wheel studs long enough to accommodate the spacer. Unfortunately, after tearing the hub out, I found that the shoulder is too small.
I am looking for 7/16-20x1 3/4 with a .512 shoulder. Has anyone purchased these and where did you find them? As a last resort,I will have to tack weld the stud to the hub.

Doug, early GM S-10 trucks used 7/16x20 studs, but I think the knurl diameter was .580. You may want to go to a decent parts store, and ask to see their selection of studs, or look at the catalog to match something up.
As a last resort, open the holes in the hub slightly to take the larger knurl.
