Front Hub Bearing Studs

2000 SD 4WD

My RF axle hub assembly is shot (probably due to dealer F. up), but thats another story in which I am too pissed at the moment to type out.

I can not get the hub assembly loose from the steering knuckle. I am going to have to hammer on the studs from inside the knuckle to break the hub free.

This of course is more than likely going to destroy the studs, requiring replacement. There are also only 3 studs (part of another story above), so no matter what, I need to find a minimum of 1 stud.

Anyone have a part number or idea? These studs are at least grade 5, possibly grade 8, so its not like I can throw just any thread rod/stud in there.

$24 is cheap for peace of mind knowing that they were built for that application.

I won't argue with that at all, but the fact that they have to be ordered is crazy. Won't see them until the end of the week and the truck is already apart. This is the same dealer that had to order a coolant tube O-ring. WTF, don't dealers stock anything anymore?

Most dealers can get them in a couple days. In all fairness to the dealer, they keep stuff in stock based on how often they sell the parts. If the computer shows that they have only sold 4 bolts over a certain period of time it will not order them to be a stocked item. If they started selling a ton of those bolts for some reason, then they would start stocking them. Ask them and they can probably tell you how many they have sold over the last 1-2 years.
