Longer Wheel Studs

Post by taco_kid »

here's a quick look at adding longer wheel studs.
2006 Tacoma 4x4, non-elocker.


pic of longer studs being inserted into the hub using nut method to get them home. i did not use a washer under the nut, but i recommend you do to prevent the acorn from smashing flat and catching the threads, i actually ground the acorn down some to make a nice flat surface. i used #2 on impact gun to seat the studs, just enough for them to bottom out, no need to kill them, etc.

watch for this hub gasket, make sure it goes back on. i cleaned the dust shield very good and then sprayed it with rustoleum black primer for rusty objects.

a little grease on the inside, and some anti-seize on the hub surface.

for the rear i uses a step drill bit to drill through the dust plate. the hole is later filled with 100% clear silicone

just showing here how the new longer ARP stud slips through into the hub

all this work for some better shoes. Level-8 Strike-6 16" with KO2's 285/75 ($1320 out-the-door, mounted/installed/tire disposal). i kept my procomp 1079 rims for other tires.
