odd headstud install ?

I called a shop and got a quote on head studs for the truck. He asked me if I had a probkwm currently because he said on some of the trucks that don't have problens they will install the studs one at a time and never remove the head. I was just wondering what everyone thought of this I currently don't have any reason to think I have any hg problems just wanted thoughts on this.

just think of all the money you will have to pay someone to go in all those times with removing everything in the way EACH time! probably better off doing all at the same time and like gary said get the heads checked as well

The only reason I ask is the guy said they do it if they are sure there isn't a problem just wasn't sure 2800 out the door for the job either way. Anyone know anyone that has done this?

Closest from Lancaster, Pa would be Hassler Diesel.
http://www.hasslerdiesel.com/

Never dealt with them, only heard of them.

FWIW, I have almost 18k on my one-at-a-time studs that I did myself.
Also, I had less than 5k on a fresh head/gasket job.
I wouldnt think of doing it on a high mileage engine, regardless of known/unknown issues.
