Robert,

You need a press to do it right. You *could* use the hammer method to take out the front studs, and use a lugnut to pull the studs in, but that's a good way to damage the stud, the hub, and the lug nut

ANd to do the rear, you HAVE to have a press, because you need the press to separate the wheel hub from the rest of the floating assembly.

Chris Wire sells replacement studs IIRC, I'm sure he'll chime in here sometime soon.

Thanks, Silk.

You can order the ARP studs from me if you like. They are sold in packs of 5, and the part number is 100-7708. They cost $11.95 per pack.

You can reach me at 800-882-7231, or email to [email protected] .

Paul is right. I just did all of the studs on my ITS car a few months ago. A press will make the job a breeze, but surprisingly, only taking them out. They still go in easier with the sledgehammer routine. You will want to run a lug nut down them to draw them through and make them straight. I like to reverse the lug nut so the large flat end is against the hub. Another tip would be to use a large flat washer on the fronts so as not to damage the aluminum hub. Lastly, go to your parts store and buy 20 new nuts for a 91 Honda CRX. They are a 19mm/ 3/4" hex, and they have a shoulder on them to help keep the nut from sinking all the way down into the socket. Let me know if I can assist you any further.

chris,

how much longer are the ARP studs? I need to change the studs on my car, but I need them about an inch longer to accomodate a big wheel spacer(to cheep to buy two new sets of wheels). I have resisted changing them to a 1/2" stud because I didn't want to drill out the hubs to fit them. thanks
