    I have the little 7/16 studs on my 10 bolts, but since I'm planning on going to a 14 bolt SF, I want to upgrade to 1/2 or 9/16. what is involved in this for the front axle? I know its pretty easy in the back, just hammer them out and put the new ones in, but there isn't much access for the front studs, but I will be doing work up there soon, changing balljoints and u-joints. Where can I pick up a set of these? Will they even fit in the front without modifications?

    I did a 14mm change in the rear and have the studs to do the front. I wrote a tech. artical on the rear and will do the same for the front. If you can wait about a week or two, I should have it done. I plan on e-mailing it to Steve so he can put it up, if he wants to!

    Hey Blazen, what is the part # for the 14mm studs that fit into the old holes occupied by the stock 7/16" studs??
