Default Wheel stud replacement

I ended up cross threading a lug onto a front wheel stud on my STI during a wheel swap. Anyone have an idea of the work/cost involved ? If its not too complicated I may DIY it and buy a stud from the parts department

it's pretty easy... I've done it quite a bit now...

You need to:

-remove wheel
-remove caliper
-remove brake disk
-hammer out old stud
-put in new stud and use washer(s) and a nut to pull into place. Impact gun works wonders for this
-reassemble brakes
-put wheel back on (don't mess it up this time)
-drive...

I fixed one with a thread die one time... much easier than replacing the stud if it isn't too terribly mangled

I just swapped all front studs on mine for longer ones. Zefy hit it right on but couple things I'll note:

Don't go over board pulling the stud in with an impact gun.
Use some lube on the threads too.
I prefer an air hammer to drive studs out but not every DIY guy would have one.

ya these are good points. With an impact gun, you can hear the sound change when the stud bottoms out. That's when you know you're done... Any more than that and the stud is very likely to break off...

Cant you just double nut the stud and drive it in by hand either wrench or rachet?

if you lube the stud, remember clean the lube off after.

(and what Coupe-a-loop said) double nut, or 1/2" washers, did mine recently (couple nights ago) by ratchet. air tools + studs = more broke studs. :P

How easily do the Brembos strip at the mounting holes when you take the bolt off? Been seeing many horror stories online. I'm used the the heavy iron sliding calipers on Hondas that are pretty strip resistant

I've had these sitting in my freezer for the past 3 years or so! I bought them for my 2006 STi but never got around to installing them. (they were in the freezer to help with the install).



You can buy them from me if you want, since I don't have an STi anymore

Part number is 40222-RS035
http://www.nengun.com/nismo/long-hub-bolts

Sell them for $60 shipped

Or, I'm heading to Whistler at the end of the month and we can do an exchange...

Let me know!

Cheers,

Jay

I ended up going to Richmond Subaru and it took 0.5hrs to get it replaced. The thought of stripping out the aluminum threads made be reluctant to DIY

How much did you pay? I'm not sure how much they charge per hour. Did you pay for a replacement stud?
