    i used the same ones that came on my 14 bolt.they were about 2 1/2 inches long.you have to make sure you either press them in all the way or pound them in good with a punch.

    If you have a 14FF with the 11" drums the studs will be too short, the 13" drums use a longer stud since the drums on those are all cast and much thicker where they attach to the hub unlike the 11" drums which are a composite drum and are much thinner where the drum attaches to the hub. Also make sure the head of the stud is no larger than 1" in diameter or they may not seat properly depending on the rotors you get.
