  16. Lug Studs/Nuts vs Lug Bolts

    My D24 had studs and nuts. The lefty nuts problem on the back left was solved for me when I put 235/75's on the back that were already mounted on wheels with too much backset. Had to put a spacer to bring them out a bit. Spacer threads were righty.
  17. Lug Studs/Nuts vs Lug Bolts

    As your bolts are as previously noted already 1/2-20 thread, a 7/16" stud to replace them does not make any sense to me. Little chance that they would hold. My point on yearly is that I would not expect to pull a wheel more than once a year. Maybe less. I would not consider "not pulling the wheels " neglect. I do not see bolts without an alignment pin to be a big enough problem to go through the process of installing studs as there is no real reason to be pulling the wheels with any frequency.. Now if I had a bad bolt hole or two that might be a turning point on my thinking.

    Front disc conversion eliminates 1/2 the problem. Right side drum to replace left drum on the rear takes care of the left hand thread problem. Take tire off once a year not much problem

  21. Web page to look up Mopar Part Number

    that site has been kicking around here on the forum since early 2010, but good to get it referenced again to help out. I believe at one time it was mentioned that they seem to duplicate the now defunct lightningjar
