86 Burb
6" lift
steering arm correction
Dana 44 front
cheap Warn(plastic) hubs in the front

Can I install the studs without removing the knuckle?(coming from the top)..The dealer wants $17 bucks(CAN) for the studs and $27 for the cones..I was originally quoted at $80 and $90 respectively..dealers here in Toronto are nuts.

Re: Is there a way to replace the knuckle studs?

This Is what I did when I snapped mine. I snapped all three of them off, so I took a welder and welded a nut to them and pulled them out then I bought some bolts the same NC thread that fits (can't remember the size) but I then put the little cones on them and tightened the holly crap out of them with a 1/2 bar and a piece of pipe. As far as the cones go do you guys have a junk yard? they are a dime a dozen around here. Anywhoo I hope that helps if not let me know. good luck
