Sheared 4 Wheel Studs and lost a Wheel

Well I now know I have the worst luck cause on the way home from work today I got a werid vibration from the front end I thought it was just the snow build up. So I pull over look at everything and it seemed to be fine... but at the last turn I had to make my damn wheel fell off. I only had one stud left so I limped home on it (like a block) But this is the second time I have had loose wheel nuts, I think someone is trying to get my tires cause with there only being one lug left on there I figured it was the locknut stud. Anyways enought introduction, I have one question can the new studs be installed without the removal of the front drive or can they slipp inbehind and be pulled through it's a dana 30. Just thought I would ask cause it is dark cold and late here so I have to get it fixed before school in the morning. Oh yea last time I got studs and nuts from the dealer they were like 6&8 dollars each anyone know of aftermarket that would carry them in stock?? thanks James

You gotta take it apart. The studs hold the disc to the hub and are press fit. I don't think that you can pull them through like you can on the rear.

You'll have to take the rotor off to change them, I'm pretty sure.
Advance/Checker/Kragen/Schucks has the studs for $0.99 each, part 98188

yes, any parts joint has the studs..
heres a hint.. when you are putting the studs through the rotor use a lug on the front with an impact wrench to seat them..tap on the back of the stud while you crank on it with the impact. this should only be a 1/2 hour job costing you $6 with new studs and grease....sounds like you need to crank the lugs a bit tighter too..

Re: Sheared 4 Wheel Studs and lost a Wheel

Well I went this morning and took out the leftovers from my hub. I guess I was not clear enough with my q. I was wondering if the hub had to be removed I know the brake assembly had to be but was unsure if the stub would fit behind the hub. The one that was left did pull out fine so thats good. I always tight my wheels sufficently I double check each time. This is not the first time someone has done this, so I am thinking of getting another set of locks and having two on each wheel. Then I won't worry so much.. Thanks guys, oh yea dealer had to order studs and they complained because I didn't want their chrome covered nuts,,, they always screw up the cover breaks and strips the nut they suck so I passed and got aftermarket $20 for five nuts wow!
