IV legacy 10mm longer wheel studs

Postby Mariano » Tue Oct 31, 2017 2:35 am

I need to install longer wheel studs on rear axle hubs. Is there enough room to do that without disassembling hubs? Studs are only 10mm longer.

No, need to unbolt the hub to press the new studs in.

Wrong. It is possible to install 10mm longer stud without removing hub. Just need to tear down one rear brake shoe, theres plenty of room. But these eibach studs does not work, knurl desing is different. Which studs will fit 100% sure?

Well they worked ok after all. Knurl design is different and 2-3mm longer but there is enough material in hub to install eibach studs. Stock stud knurl diameter is 14.4mm and eibach 14.3mm. It seems to be tight enough and put some loctite on knurl. :) Car handles better now.

:D I have 10mm spacers on rear and 3mm on front. It made rear wheels et-55 to -45. Could not believe it made such big difference in handling :shock:
