Actually, I think Duffman was offering up Jay's two hands to hold Christiaan's loose nuts.   :o

Ok

So, I got down and did all I could aside from removing my tire last night, and it seems I have 2 studs that are stripped.

Who/where can I get replacement studs, and how difficult is the replacement?

I think Valentin said he has some....but I'd like to get a few extra in the event this comes up again

<insert stripped studs, replacement studs, Valentin's studs jokes here>

front is way easier to replace studs thankfully, just pound the old stud out and install the new stud, using washers and a lug nut to pull the stud through.



I recommend getting a torque wrench and following the recommended torque specs for studs for people that don't have calibrated arms like me :D

too tight can be just as bad as too loose(well maybe not, too loose and your tire falls off :P ) for lug nuts, too tight and you stretch the studs and cause them to break, too loose and the wheel movement allows the lugs to work loose and fall off or break the stud.

Whhhoooaaaaa, now someone has two "Stripped Studs" looking for "Replacement Studs." This went downhill fast.

Finally got around to adding some auxillary power. Now I'm anxious to add some stuff to it!

Looks great! Is that mounted under the driver's side kick panel? That seems like a good spot.
