    Well Iv got one that turns when I remove the nut.Im lucky enough that its one that I can get vise grips on from the back side to hold it.I pressed a new stud into the knuckle when I had it apart doing ball joints but it spins also.I thought about welding it in but possible replacement later wouldnt be fun.

    Just wondering if anyone else has dealt with this.Thanks

    Why not just drill it out and tap it for a regular stud?
