Default Wheel Stud Replacement

Thanks to Street Sniper for this DIY!

The wheel studs come out just like a bolt. Unfortunately without taking the whole sum'bitch apart you have to grind the stud and the hub down so that you can slide them in there. It's really not that big of a deal.

Take the wheel off and get behind the caliper. Take these bolts off.


Take the disc off.


You can see here where it is grinded (ground?) down so that you can slide it past. Turn the rotor so that the bad wheel stud is here and beat it out.


Wheel stud before. These are like 99 cents from your local parts store, maybe $1.99.


Grind it down pretty good to where it is almost flat on one side. Hold it with something 'cause it gets a little warm.


Wheel stud after.


Now wiggle it in, grind to grind.


Now you need to get some sort of spacer to pull the stud into place. I used a nut here that is bigger than the lug. Put it on the stud and then tighten the lug down on it and it will pull the stud in tight where it needs to be.


Bam, and there you go. I doubt this is how Hayne's will tell you to do it, but this is the real world, son.
