Wheel studs for 9" billet axles

Does anyone make proper chrome moly wheel studs to suit our XB/XC Aussie disk brake rear ends. ARP seem to only make the American type? WHat should I run with my billet axles? The hard steel flanges destroy the splines on all the ones I have tried.

Re: Wheel studs for 9" billet axles

Oh dear. The flange is the round plate on the wheel end of the axle. It has 5 holes in it that the wheel studs press into. Billet axles are forged from a billet of steel rather then cast into shape. They are much stronger and the steel is harder, much harder then the splines on my wheel studs.
They are here: http://www.moserengineering.com/mose...ustomaxles.htm

I know that the factory items are made of the rare metal called unobtanium.

Re: Wheel studs for 9" billet axles

Thanks rod. Can you post a pic for me or give me a part number so I can look for a picture on their website? I have already looked there and couldnt find the right one. The important part is the splines. American (rear disk brake) ones have the splines right under the head. Aussie ones have a 10mm shoulder, no splines where the disk goes. The disk goes behind the axle flange.

Re: Wheel studs for 9" billet axles

Yep! they werent the right ones were they? Again let down by an aftermarket industry that cannot deliver. Not you but people who supply the wheel studs, or rather dont supply the correct wheel studs to suit the axles they make.
