    Did you have to grind down the head of the wheel lugs in order for them to fit the rotor? Or is there another lug out there that has a smaller head?

    Too bad they won't fit in my drill or it would be done by now.

    ok im not familiar with the 14 bolt's,,but doesn't the rotor just slide over the lug's ? why would you need to grind the head of the lug ,on the back side of the axle face,for the rotor to fit ? there are several different size lug's for trucks and cars. they should however be the same if your going from drum to disc,,you didn't change the axle.

    On a 14FF the rotor (or drum) goes inboard of the hub. The studs go thru the rotor than thru the hub just like the front does. The recess in the rotor for the lug head is too small for the lug and front lugs are too short to use.

    Thanks.
    I will search around and see if there are any "off the shelf" lugs out there. I think for that much $$$ I'll just grind their heads down. I'm too cheep and all these mods at once are killing me.
