    Does anyone know how I would go about replacing the rear OEM Studs with Longer wheel studs? How do I take the assembly apart??

    My problem is that I don't have enough room behind the wheel stud plate and the rear drum casing to get the stud through the hole.

    Does the wheel stud plate come off?? I'm having trouble with the rears not the fronts. The fronts are done.

    You will probably have to pull the axle shaft.

    I may be wrong, but can't you just drill a hole through the backing plate and punch the stud through the hole?

    he said his wheels wont fit due to having high positive back space, therefore some spacers takes the place of having longer studs? im assuming, why wont his wheels fit? are they not made for the truck?

    thats what my idea was for, cause why else would he be needing new wheel studs? unless one is broke... idk just my .02 thought id save him some trouble of tearing his whole rearend out just for 6 little studs....

    UPDATE

    Ok, so I was laying in bed last night and I thought..."what if I take 3/16 off the lugs extended lugs" (The extended lugs are just about 1 inch longer than the factory ones.)

    So first thing this morning I did just that to see if I could get them in without having to get everything pressed out and BINGO. They fit!!

    I needed longer wheel studs to accomodate the 1/2 spacer I used. I didn't need it on the back but I used it on the front so I said screw it I'll put them on the rear as well.

    Everything ended up working perfect.
