Look What I Found...FML...Headstud (pic)

Went to start the truck after being gone for a week and found a broken headstud laying underneath it. Has anyone had a stud snap like this???? Only owned the truck for a couple months and put maybe 1k miles on it. Not used for towing and neither did the previous owner. Trying to determine if this was something that happened the last time I drove it and it just happened to wiggle itself out as I parked or if this was a previous issue and it just now came out. No oil/coolant loss. 199k, has all the usual mods and not hot rodded or throwing down tons of power. Anyone know of a reliable diesel shop around the Savannah, GA area haha...

You need to look at your truck and see if its from yours or not. I can't imagine with the rust on it that its yours.....it might be that PO was looking at it and dropped it in the valley and couldn't find it....

ARP ka-snapped! Someone is punking you or the stud is really broken. Did you find it yet? Should be an easy find if it is yours.

Some have asked why you don't want to over-torque an ARP stud, or inspect it on assembly. Here is one reason.

ARP would probably be interested in getting this one back and giving you a new set.

Oh I am sure ARP see's all kinds of user install errors

they already know their studs aren't going to have a MFG defect IMHO

way to many QC tests going on

Ya, it is the stud closest to the firewall on the driver's side. It's definitely missing. Has anyone seen something like this before after installing studs? I guess im extremely lucky for it to have fallen out while idling in the parking space and not while driving down the road; who knows how long it would have been before that would be noticed.

As far as the rust, I am assuming it came out when I parked it last week. Sat for a week on the ground with rain pretty much everyday
