Snapped a stud

And no I'm not talking about my pud...today I decided to take the car out and give a good bath and swap out the wheels. I ended up snapping one of the studs on the right rear axle spline. About an inch snapped off at an angle, so the lug was cross threaded on there. I knew it was going to happen. I couldn't get it to budge with the impact wrench, so I gave it some good ole arm-torque with the wrench, and that did it.

Looks like I have a nice little project to do this week. Luckily it's not overly difficult to do, just be fun tapping that old stud out and getting the new one in. Anyone do this before, any tips would be appreciated.

On a positive note, the car looks great, all cleaned up...plus it always looks better with the bullitts on. Might just do some caliper painting since the one of the wheels will have to be off.

Re: Snapped a stud

Did it on kyles car a few years ago. Just hit the old stud with a hammer a few times and it'll come out. You'll be able to relieve some stress too. Also, use a heavy hammer if you have one.

After outing the new one in, put a lug nut on it and toque it down to draw the stud all the way in. Then mount your wheels.

Re: Snapped a stud

Oh yeah, I got a big *** hammer. I'll probably just throw it up on jack stands and paint the calipers since I got the wheels off again. Thanks for the reply, it should be fun.

Re: Snapped a stud

Went through a spell on the cobra where I was snapping them right and left. Went back with an OEM Ford stud and haven't had the same problems.

As stated above, just use a hammer and all is well.

You know, it happened once before back in 07. My dad and my mechanic were with it then so I don't know which wheel or stud it happened to, and I didn't ask, and both of them are no longer with us so I can't even ask them

I did notice the stud is slightly crooked so that probably doesn't help matters...I would've been swapping in a new one either way knowing that.

Should I order an OEM one then, an auto parts store stud isn't reliable?

Re: Snapped a stud

I've had issues with auto parts studs...none of them fit correctly. Just go oem and don't worry about it.
