Be gentle if you replace lug studs
Be gentle if you replace the lug studs.
I snapped my lug studs because some garage decided to tighten them to a million ft lbs or whatever. Was in a rush so I hammered in new ones after beating the hell out of my stuck on rotors to remove them, and managed to screw one up which I angle ground off and replaced again.
Ended up damaging the rear face of the hub, which caused the lug stud to not sit flush, which quickly ruined the bearing. I knew it was damaging it due to the hellish noise but I had to make it back home, a 6 hour drive away.
Can't do the work myself to fix all that due to my current situation, so I am having a mechanic do it. Total damage: $725 (Most of which is the price for the hub, bearing, replacement lug studs again and replacement rotor, Canadian parts are stupid expensive).
Moral of the story: Take it slow and easy if you decide to do this job. It's not complicated, but if you're in a rush, you can break anything!
