3" Wheel Studs

I've read through a lot of old posts about this, but I couldn't find a confirmation. Can anyone confirm if these will work with stock (2-piece) front KH disc brakes https://www.summitracing.com/parts/msr-8010/overview/ ?



Can I use the same ones on the rear, or are they different?


Thanks.

It appears that the rears use a .618 knurl vs .625 for the part number listed. Can't find any info on the fronts but they are a different part number than the rears.

I canít answer your question, but I bet a quick call John at ORP or Shaun at SorT would remove all guess work.

I can't be sure either, but personally I'd suggest using ARP. The resources that Patrick suggested will likely be able to help or try Cobra Automotive. Mustang Competition Wheel Studs

If your front brakes are like the 2 piece rotors on my '69, these are the ARP wheel studs that worked for my car:

They were actually a bit short for thick Weld Wheels so I switched to one piece front rotors that used more reasonably priced long wheel studs that worked with the Weld Wheels.

Those look great. Thank you for replying, I'm about to upgrade pads and I want to do this at the same time.


Thanks

About the only way to be sure of what you need is to knock one of the old studs out and measure the stud hole To get an accurate measurement, measure in an area that hasn't been deformed by the splines. ARP may be the only ones that are strong enough to use with wheel spacers or excessively offset wheels. Their thread tolerances are much tighter than most others, especially OEM studs.

It's looking like the only ones that fit the 2-piece rotor are the expensive ARP ones @app01 posted because of where the knurls are located. Lots of cheaper options for the rear.

I've bought a lot of ARP fasteners, been to their plant, and toot their horn as often as I can, but...good Lord are those wheel studs expensive!

OK. The ad I was in shock over listed them for $75. $70 is still crazy for 5 studs, but I have no doubts about their quality.
