Long story short, the shop that did my inspection checked the brakes, and they must have F'ed up my lug studs when jamming the lug nut on with an impact wrench.

I had to change the tire yesterday and it was stripped.

I take it back there, and they all but cut the lugnut in half to get it off, then "did me a favor" by not charging me. They're not going to change the stud, and I don't know if I'm going to have time to take them to court, so ultimitly, I'm probably going to be the one holding the bag on this.

So, how does one go about changing a front, driver-side lug?

Here's a pic of the stud that got F'ed up.

Thanks in advance.

Mine is not that bad hairraise From what I have read.

1 remove wheel (duh) (have bad lug turned so it's at the bottom)
2 remove brake caliper (2 LARGE bolts near the hub)
This is where I stopped since my air ratchet was not strong enough to even try and turn them.
3 remove rotor
4 either use a special tool (Autozone) or hammer it out the back (there is a hole for it to exit)
5 install new one and use several washers and a lug nut to pull it into place.

I hope someone can chime in with more details for your and my benefit.

Especially on step 2

Jebus man! It's not that hard to get 'em off!

So are you saying I need to hammer the back, pusing it twords the outside of the car, or hammer the front of the lug, so it would come out twords the engine compartment?

It seems like an easy job from what you discribe. Hopefully other people will chime in to conferm.

Also, explain the washers a bit more in detail for me. I don't exactly get the picture you're trying to paint with it.

Does the rotor just slide out, or are there some kinda bolts/pins I godda remove first?

Yeah, I know it's bad. That's what you get when an idiot takes an impact wrench to your car needlessly.

yes, the rotor just slides off. Its my understanding that you knock the stud twords the engine bay since they are pressed in from the back of the flange. You use the washers kind of like spacers between the lug nut and the hub flange and use a old lug nut and impact gun to pull the new stud into place.

Ahhh. I understand. How hard is it to do without an impact gun? I don't own one.

Alright, apparently I'm boned. I checked out Advance Auto, AutoZone, NAPA, and Rock Auto. They don't have it for the front, only the rear (and only NAPA and Rock Auto could get those). Would I be able to use one for the rear on the front, or is it made ONLY for the rear?

Anyone know another source that I could get the stud for the front?

Pretty much the same procedure we used when replacing ones that broke on the race car.
If you can't get parts to come loose with an air gun, use a little penetrating oil (pb blaster, wd40) or heat them up with a torch, then try again, evenutally they'll break free and come off.

Hammer the stud from the outside and hammer towards the engine bay. When we replaced the ones on the race car, we didn't use washers, but highly recommended.

It'll take you more time to remove the brake caliper rotor, and wheel than it'll take you to replace the stud.
Very easy to do.

Thanks for the input Tracy. I'm glad this is going to be an easy fix. I should post a picture of they lugnut, the completely F'ed that S up.

I really do need an answer to my last question. Can I get away with using some Dorman lug studs that say they're for the rear, or do I have to buy ones made for the front? I can't seem to locate the front ones. If anyone has any input on a source, I'd appreciate it.

Rear studs are shorter IIRC.

The closest thing I found was Dorman part number 610-426, but it only lists '98-'06. Will this work, or did something change in the brake hardware that won't let me use it?

Thanks.

I called up a local Ford dealer and they gave me a part number of 5w1z1107. I can't seem to locate it with Google, and on Tasca I didn't find anything either.

WTF!!??!!?

Anyone got any insight on this for me?

Thats why you should buy it locally, and that part number is missing the suffix...usually a letter or two.
I have nothing else to add..they guys gave you some good advice smile

Hey WSTRLNG...how the heck do you post a link right to the part selected confused whenever I try to do that it just links to the the site's homepage cuss
