Anyone out there running rear chevy disc brakes ever use longer wheel studs due to running mag wheels? I've had rear discs for over 2 years running 33 BFG's, but now that I'm going to 16/35 Boggers I'm a little leary. With the chevy rotors and the old classic slotted mags, I don't seem to have enough thread.

Any input and/or sources for parts would be greatly appreciated. Gonna try the local 4x4 shop today.

Yeah, I'd like to stay metric due to the fact that I have to use the old mag lugs (major pain in the @$$) and if they got mixed with the fronts it'd be a pain. If I can't find metric, I'll just swap all 4 out (gotta pull the front end apart to do the locker anyways).

Thanks

I'm not sure if the front and rear are the same but I had to get longer studs when I used 1/4" spacers to clear the tie rod ends. I still have the box they came in. It has the name DORMAN on it, part # 610-265. 12M-1.5x44.8MM. They were about 3/8" longer than stock. HTH

This may or may not help, but, there are two
different rotor flange thicknesses for the
Chevy 1/2 tons. Autozone carries the thinner
flanged ones. Sorry, I don't have the part #
handy. If you swap rotors now, your stock studs may work fine. BTDT! <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0">

Dangle,

Thanks for the box info - 3/8" would be bout right with the current lugs. Do you remember who you picked the studs up from?

Had the rotors for over 2 years with minimal wear, too late to swap out ($$$ considerations).

I got them from a local parts store called ALL FORIEGN AUTO PARTS. About $1.25 each. I'd check with your local parts places and see if they either carry that brand or can cross referance the number. Another thing you might try is the studs from a front disk mini truck. When I did the conversion on my cruiser I noticed that the studs are really long because they go through the rotor and the hub which has a sort of built in spacer. if the fat knurled part is the same diameter then you could just trim them to whatever length you need. Just a thought, hth.

Sorry, I should have said that the mini was an 81 4x4. I think different years had different rotor and hub types.
