as for all this changing of wheel studs or opening the diff. get the shop to fix the crappy job they did.

another easy way to do it would be to just swap axles.

Why would you swap axles when the issue is the wheel stud?

cuz you guys are teling him two different ways to do it and he's might get confused and perplexed. at least with an axle swap, there is only one way to do it, ad far as i kno.

hell, he might even come out ahead if the new one is out of an exploder with discs or a limited slip.

He's already decided the way that HE wants to do it. You're coming in with a third idea to just swap axles...Why would you pay a few hundred for an axle versus a couple bucks for a stud?

Id love discs all around and LSD...but I dont have the money after all this BS + $1240 this month on the house + all the utility deposits.


Borrowed $20 from my bro and took them to a shop I trust..they balanced them and got it right the first time...adding weights to the front left and rear right wheels...now it rides smooth. (because i had taken it to the tireshop where I bought the tires twice and they still didnt fix it so Im not letting them touch my truck again)

Thanks for the help everyone. Hopefully Ill have the time and money in the middle of this month to do the lug stud... /thread.
