How can I tell if I have studs?

Is there a way I can tell if I have stock head bolts or studs?

Look around with your flashlight on the drivers side. If you see funky star shaped nuts on the heads, you have ARP's. If you see standard bolt heads, you have Ford TTY bolts.

6 point bolts are stock 12 point are ARP's if my memory serves me correctly. And the ARP's look like a nut not a bolt if that makes sense
