Head studs??

Alright first things first 2003 king ranch 88000 miles running custom tuned sct with egr delete!! I am not having problems with leaking coolant truck is running fine just want some piece of mind!! A guy was telling me you could replace your headstuds one at a time? If so do you still have to remove the cab? is it easier? If you can do this do you recommend doing it with 88000 miles on the truck?? Thanks all comments will be appreciated!!

if you have the money then yes i would get the head studs done. you can do it with that cab on removing one at a time. its just a lot easier and less time consuming to do it with the cab off. it def is not a bad idea to go ahead and get it done. running a tuner they will probably go eventually.

yes if its not puking thats a good sign. but they can still be failed with no signs of puking. you can have liquid on the headers and thats a sign. the best way to determine is to do a pressure test. look it up, there are some good write ups about how to do it and make your own. thats the best way to know if there blown
