    I am doing the 14ff disc swap right now. I want to put the rotors on the hub, and the head of the stud is bigger than the indentation on the disc. Do I need to grind all the stud heads down to fit, or are you guys running them like that? they are the napa premium rotors. thanks. I can get pics if needed.

    Mine had the same problem, once I pressed them in as far as I could, I found that they were to short also. I ended up getting the correct sized ones in the end.

    If yours are long enough, I would not worry about to much. I am pretty anal about how things fit, thats just me though.

    As I remember it was due the difference in studs for the rear verses the studs for the front. Since the disc's that we use for the conversion are really for the front it all makes sense.
