    I got some brackets from a member and am trying to install. I found out I need some spacers for brackets. 11/16 thick.any clue what I can use? I also tried to put my rotors on and because the rotors are thicker than the drums, my studs are short. I went to parts store and found longer studs to install. 3.00 each, need 16!! anybody else run into this?

    Not sure who you bought your brackets from but DERBINATORS brackets come with a solid round spacer. You must have had the 11" drums which use a shorter stud than the 13" drums use.

    I went to a speciality fastener store and picked up some bolts and some lock-nuts for extra security. If he won't make em for you, all it is a tubing product, try here: www.mcmaster.com do a search on bushings, then choose: Machinery Bushings. They have many sizes, there should be something close!

    i picked up all 16 of the lugs from my local tranny and axle shop. 15 bucks for all of them. they were out of a dually. EXTRA long. stick out as far as the hub itself.
    but they wrok. and cost less.
    Or2play has the stock ones, they are to short by about 2 - 4 threads...
