HaHa....yep...or Better is the enemy of good enough (i.e. meets spec).
when i replaced the rear studs with longer ones the kneril was slighty smaller then what it called for so i has to spot weld the studs to the axel so the would not spin whe removing the lug nuts

While there, discovered that my front disc brakes can use a service, so that's getting opened up, which means, WTH, gonna try out longer wheel studs. I have one unit of the Dorman #610-277 on order, if it does <mostly> what I need, I'll buy the remaining 9 and finish the front studs with a new and improved longer length. Would like the diam-extended-beyond-lugnut as Midlife suggested, but I also want to get something better than what I currently have.

I am looking for longer studs for my front wheels with original disc brakes. In my search i found this thread!

Did the Dorman studs work!? Any advice? tnks!!

Hi all,

i'm sorry I never replied to the above query. Life and everything that has to do with it so often gets in the way.

I was never able to find any longer stud that is a press in, one shot deal. All require some sort of machining or handling, and I haven't the time for that.

So I have just put the wheels onto the car, and I'm driving it. It goes to and from work, about 10 miles on a day i drive it, 3-4 weeks out of the year. Not hammering it, so I am (possibly unwisely) not worrying about it. I have checked them from time to time to make sure they are tightened.

When I get thru some other auto projects (I have too damn many of them), i'll revisit this and maybe come up with another solution.

Best regards,
Hi Tom! Dont worry. I did solve the problem by using ARP 100-7707 on my 71 with original front discs. They were 1/2 inch too long so I had to cut them.
