Lightbulb How To: Wheel Stud Removal/Install

The main reason for this upgrade would be either to remove a broken or stripped wheel stud or to upgrade your wheel studs to extended studs to run spacers.

Their are several ways to due this but I went the shorter route, via "dont stop, hammer time"...

So out with the old and in with the new...


Parts to be installed are ARP extended wheel studs. Model #400-7717
and some featherlight RobiSpec lug nuts. Sized 12x1.5

I jacked my car up using the pinch weld and then placed a jack stand in the alternate jack point.

Once the caliper and rotor are removed you can now get to work. Pay particular attention in the orientation of the spindle. You must have it this way for the studs to be removed.

With both wheels elevated it is relatively easy to remove one stud and then spin the spindle for the next stud.

With all the studs removed you can now place the new ones in.

I placed spacers that were a larger inner diameter than the studs and a M12 nut/lug to pull the new stud in. As you can see I used some lubricant to ease the operation

NOTE: I did not use a jack stand on the non-working side. Reason being is that the spindle will continuously spin when trying to tighten/pull the studs in if both wheels are elevated. What I first would do is knock out all the old studs with both wheels elevated. Once the old studs were all removed and the new studs installed, I would lower the non-working side just enough for the tire to give traction. I would then tighten/pull the stud in.



New set up w/ anti-seize on the threads

Awesome setup. I was thinking of doing this since I was planning on getting some 18x9.5 +22 rims and spacers. Great job and thanks for the help.

Sorry but I searched for the 400-7717 and could not find (was wondering if a stronger bolt)....Was that a typo and is the real part # 100 - 7717 ? Thanks !

Nice write-up, but any thoughts on the hammering damaging the wheel bearing? Just curious.
