    I've done the 8-lug conversion on my 86' K-10 10 bolt front axle and the stock 9/16-18 wheel studs are too short for my aluminum wheels. Does anyone have a good source for wheel studs? The local Truck Pro store has had some on back order for over 2 months and no delivery date in site.
    I need
    Euclid part # E-8959-R, .625" knurl dia., ***length 2 13/16".

    Most other studs I've found are only 2 1/8" in length.
    I need 16 of them.
    Thanks
    Chris

    I've checked with all the local places and a few on the internet. They all have them but they are all too short.

    Is a dana 60 front wheel stud the same as a 10 bolt front axle wheel stud?

    I just did a disc conversion on a 14bff and had to go with dually studs. NAPA part # BK641-1066. I don't know if that's what you need, but they worked great for my application.

    I just measured my studs and they are 3 5/8" (just the length of the shaft) and 3 15/16" (length of the entire thing).

    Thanks for the reply AKbigsub. I went to NAPA to check but it won't work. The wheel studs need a .625" knurl dia. and then another step up. I guess the brake rotor has a slightly larger hole than the hub. However NAPA did have a wheel stud with .628" knurl dia. with the correct length. Does anyone know if that would press in OK and work?

    I've got the same problem. I'm running M/T Classic II and have about 4 threads worth of engagement. Have the 1 ton running gear too.

    I'm running some cheap made in China ProComp wheels. I think the part number is 1069. I will try post some pics. I'm using an open end wheel nut and you can see about one and a half threads into the nut!
