a wheel stud is a wheel stud, right?

    Aight, here we go.

    I have a 3/4 ton 14b from a 70's model pickup. I also have a 14b from a 1 ton van with the 13" brakes. I want to put the brakes from the 1 ton on the 3/4 ton 14b. The dealership named about 10 different possible wheel studs I could use.

    I also have an 79 D44 that I want to use with this setup. The dealership said that the only wheel stud that would work has been discontinued. Not that I would pay for a wheel stud from the dealership, especially at 5 bucks a pop, but I don't know what to get.

    I thought a wheel stud was a wheel stud. Tell me what works.

    Take a sample of what You want to use to NAPA. Match it up to Their Dorman Product's line of Stud's. diameter of thread, 9/16" Diameter of Knurled area, [where it go's into drum/hub] and the length of the stud You want. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The left handed threads were most common on heavy duty trucks and scouts that I can rememberf rom the old tire buster days. The only difference I can think of is diameter and length. Just be sure they're 9/16th and long enuff for your lug nutses.

    From light trucks, I think when speaking of HD trucks they are refering to BIG trucks
