Pop one of your front wheels off and slip in a spacer without changing the studs. You should have enough exposed thread to temporarily tack the wheel in place. That will at least let you know if 10mm in the front is what you're looking for.

You won't have enough stud length in the rears to do that though with the 15mm.

^ So... mine should be 15mm longer... not a big difference to 17mm longer... you're saying there's no way they will fit in the rear wheels?

The 62mm studs, no I could not get in. I'm borrowing the following pic which shows, like I previously mentioned the possibility of having enough room by removing a shoe.



I found an extra extended stud that I had purchased when I discovered the Ichiba ones were too long. Despite what I had mentioned a few posts back, I ended up getting OE + 5mm (50mm). These I was able to wiggle in, and still had ample thread for the 10mm spacer. That said, you should be fine with a 55mm stud in the back. Any longer than that and I'd say you'd be in the same boat I was.

This is becoming an horribly long, and potentially confusing discussion on stud length. Hopefully some others will chime in eventually as plenty of 10mm+ wheel spacers have been installed in this community.

But I got 15mm spacers for the back, so if I understand correctly from what you're saying, I'm headed for disaster, but I will let you know

EDIT: Not confusing... for 10mm spacers you should have a 55mm stud, for my 15mm spacers, I guess I have 60mm studs, because OE studs are 45mm... What's confusing about this?

And, you're saying that I should have problems with studs bigger than 55mm, which means spacers thicker than 10mm... in the back.

Yes, I am well aware that you are putting 15mm spacers in the rear. What I am saying is a 55mm stud back there should be ample for those spacers. Any longer than that and I'm thinking some tear down will be required in the drum to get them in.

How about you measure the length of the studs H&R shipped and we'll see what you are faced with.

Added bonus when you take the hub off, you can stand at your work bench and replace the studs instead of sitting on the floor.

Good info Jason. I thought that those 4 bolts released the entire drum/hub assembly from the axle beam. Didn't realize that the hub would then also separate from the drum. Thanks.

Correct. Also the way you install the hub spacer!

It does release all of it, but between the parking brake cable and brake hardline the drum assembly will stay in place.

So you're telling me that if I unscrew those four bolts that can be seen from those big holes on the plate where the studs are (I'm guessing that's what you call the hub?) I can just take the hub away from the "wheel" and replace the studs? That's surely good info if I can't make the stud fit somehow.

Just measured the stud. 62 mm, so not very different from the 60 predicted!

Exactly, makes it much easier. *If you have ABS you will need to unplug the wire on the back.

Great, thanks for that. I'm guessing the wire on the back should be easy to spot and unplug, but would you be so kind as to post a picture of that, if possible?

Welll.... ok!

Let me dig this up! It has been about half a year now? :D

I've just posted a thread in the Wheels/Tires/Etc section with my "walkthrough"...

Interestingly enough, as you predicted, WeeYari, not enough space for the 15 mm spacer studs... and, by mistake :p I installed the 15 mm spacers with the studs from the 10 mm spacers lol... I get about 7 complete turns with this combination. Do you think it's ok?

Let me know! Thanks!!
