I am trying to get longer wheel studs for my axels. The studs in the car are .472. I can not find longer studs in that size. The closest one are .480. What can I do to make these fit? Thanks Matt

A .480 knurl stud will pull into the previous .472 knurl.

I did mine with an impact wrench and hardened washers. Just slide the studs through their holes in the axle....slip the hardened washers on, and use an open ended lug nut and thread it right down on the stud, sandwiching up against the washers and pulling the stud through til its seated.

I used a regular old crafstman impact. No real high torque deal or anything. Didnt take too long.

I used a 1/2" drive rachet a 1/2" drive socket a hardened washer and a stock lugnut, put the stud in run it through the socket and put the washer on it then tighten the lug nut down on top of it ,that will pull the stud in

Take a BFH and a punch and tap them out, wear safety glasses!

I had to replace some extra long studs on an axel once, and had to pull the darn thing because they were too long to punch out the rear side.
