    Driving down the free way by the 5 hit a bump thought ill slow down and pull over to check it out, went to slow down then saw my tire speeding past me... and thought awww fuck! It really was no that bad. got my tire off the side of the road then got it towed fixed the next day Took a while to undo some of the bolts but mehh worked out. Turns out i had wheel spacers on the front end of the truck..... witch in turn made the wheel (rim) sit on the end of the studs just to much stress on the studs. So two new rotors hub's and asy along with new spindle.
    Turns out in 2000 ford changed the way there hub and rotor's are because of studs breaking off.
    Fenders a little messed up other then that where g2g.
    Id post a build but most of you guy's know i don't keep a truck for to long :]

    This is very difficlult to read and comprehend but I think I got the main idea.

    This a Ford vehicle.

    One stud is still on the rotor so I'm guessing that stud never had a lug nut on it.
