Wheel Stud, can't find it anywhere! Help!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had a squeek in the front end and a vibration so I pull the front right tire check it out, and as I am finger tightening the lug nut back on the wheel stud breaks off. It is a 1997 F350 CC LB DRW 7.3 4x4. BUUUT, it was a dually conversion. I took the stud around to parts stores and a Ford dealership and they all say they don't have one this big! They all tried giving me what their books show for this part and it is a much longer, skinnier wheel stud. The one I have says A-4 on the top with a logo that looks like a sun, and it says R on the tip of it. Is there anyway for me to find out what the front end is, or where to find this wheel stud? Ebay doesn't have any that look similar.

Can't drive the truck until I replace this one (will probably replace all of them since this one snapped off so easy. Any help is appreciated.

Do you know the company that did the conversion? Should have a sticker somewhere on their work.

It had a mostly peeled off sticker on the back window that started with an A .. I thought maybe Atlas or Arrow .. When I do a search I come up with Arrowcraft, and they do have everything on their site to do the conversion. It is the stud on the dually adapter on the front. That is probably where the confusion lies with Auto Zone etc... they don't show that adapter as a part. So they give me the stud that the hub accepts. Any ideas? I went into a Fleet Pride (handles mostly semis and trailers) today and they said they don't have any wheel studs this small.

I am stuck!

Pull out a good stud, take it to the store with you, and have them match it up. It can't be anything too super special.

Took one to Auto Zone, O'Reillys, Auto Authority, and a Ford Dealership parts counter .. all of which said they didn't have one that big in stock. They all tried giving me one that was substantially thinner and longer.

I took a lug nut with me too because longer wouldn't matter. But the lugs don't fit them and the press in part is much smaller. Took the first one back to the truck and it is not even close.

Sheesh, you might have to get in touch with Arrowcraft then.

Anyone know where I can buy the dually adapters .. I might just look at buying new ones instead of pressing 16 new studs into the old ones. Can't be that much more expensive.

Just for a visual ...

Image Detail for - http://i.ebayimg.com/21/!CEprlUg!Wk~$(KGrHqYOKjIE0eGNUfzRBNShGoo-Hg~~_35.JPG

So the back part bolts on to the little skinny wheel studs everyone keeps trying to give me at parts store. The part that is only holes on this one .. goes up to the studs that would hold a non-dually style front wheel. The BIG studs on the other end of this adapter holds the dually style wheels... it is one of the bigger, fatter studs that I broke off. Anyone have an idea where to get these? I can find the smaller ones for the other side all day long, but no luck with the bigger ones.
