Looking for studs. Need help

Alright....Looking for hub assembly mounting studs. NOT the twheel mounting studs, but the ones used to mount the assembly to the steering knuckle. Had to junk the old ones as they were trashed/rusted in place.

I guess im crazy to think that a new hub assembly would come with the studs ready to go. Went thru a few auto parts stores and none of them can order the studs. They dont even have a diagram to base it off of.

Hit up the parts palace at the dealership and have yet to recieve a call back. Fella told me they have to contact Ford to try and track em down. I'm about to lose my mind here with all this nonsense. Had to explain to 3 places what it was i was looking for and got into a short argument b/c one guy tried to tell me they were bolts and not studs........

please tell me someone had an idea of where i can get these damn studs before the weekend so i can get my beloved truck back on the road.

BTW...2000 ford X. 4x4..

The old ones were a ***** to get off, and reinstall on the new hubs.

I couldn't find new studs worth of nothing either, so I wound up taking them off the old hubs.

I put 2 nuts on the stud, tighten them together as hard as I could, then heat up the old hub in a vice and turn the inside nut to get it out, then I had to heat up the outer nut to separate it from the inner with the stud in the vice.

It was a huge pain in the ***, but it worked.
