Northwest Members - Question about Front Wheel Studs
07-18-2005, 07:52 PM
I am looking to upgrade my front wheel stud to a higher quality wheel studs in order to use my front skinnies legally and just for reassurance. I have 12mm x 1.5 on the rear and wanted to know if I could do the same size up front or what all of recommendations would be. I already have the shank lugs to go on 12mmx1.5 but i see all of these different style and diameter and stuff on JEG's and Summit. Have no clue which ones to get. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks Matt

The ARP 100-7708s are the longer, NHRA legal direct-replacements for our studs if that is what you want to know. Tbyrne can get them & Thunder stocks them. Your lug nuts fit them, and the caps even screw on (on my car anyway).

will i have to get new lugnut to go with them since the studs are going to be longer now? I have some cheesy acorn lugs on there now.

You can get some new ones if you want to, but the stock ones fit those studs.

I found them on both sites, so I will have to go ahead and order them! Thanks Mark

Just out of curiousity is it worth it to have someone install these or are they able to be done in the garage by myself?

They are "press-in"....pounding the old ones out with a hammer is easy. Getting the new ones in AND STRAIGHT is a little more difficult. I always take mine to a shop.....

Then that is what I will do! Thanks Mark!
