    Wheel lugs (difference between front/rear nuts/studs?)

    So someone in my car's history ended up crossthreading one of the rear lugs. My FLAPS only had the front ones listed. I checked the EPC, and it seems that the front and rear have different part numbers. Is there a real difference between the two? What do you guys do when you have to replace the brake drums?

    There is no way the NUTS are different between front and rear but the STUDS probably are. They will need to theoretically be pressed in and out.

    9,999 purchase price + tax..no additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
    so receipt says $8,399....+1600 .... so they look good i guess...for a brand new car!

    Welp. The rear studs are indeed different. The splines are smaller, and the length is different. On the plus side, you can knock them out of the drum with a regular hammer.

    Not yet. I had to order the stud from my local dealer. It's going to have to wait until this weekend. (I'm gonna have to replace the flange on the muffler then too) Just threw the old one back in for now.
