2011 GT needs longer front wheel studs

I need to go another 5/8 of an inch longer on my '11 GT front wheel studs.
I am hoping Moroso or someone makes these.
Does anyone know exactly which studs I would need because I know they have a different knurl size than the rears.

you might try a place like Discount tire or similar type place as they may. You also can go to a dealer/parts retailer and get measurements off one. The last choice would be to remove one from your car and measure.

IMO ARP is the gold standard for nuts and bolts. Vorshlag has done lots of Mustang work and has either studs of a complete hub with longer studs.

yep I believe ARP offers extended length high-strength studs

FRPP sells hub with ARP studs M-1104-A

also just wondering, why do you need longer studs?

Sorry, thought I answered this earlier. I installed a wide body kit and need to push the front wheels out 1/2 inch.

An update. Well I got Moroso studs but I got lied to. Moroso part number 46185 says they fit 2005-2014 Mustang front.... but they don't! The knurl diameter on these is .594 inch. The hub hole diameter is .543 inch. I called Moroso on this and they said well, you have to drill out your hub holes to .594. I answered that the key word in this debate is "fit", and yours don't! No reponse yet!

Call Summit Racing, they'll fix you up, one of my favorite stores. Why not just replace the hubs all together....

Nice looking kit too, although more than just studs but over all less labor than replacing 10 studs

Well thanks all but I have just replaced the hubs a year ago so not paying for something I don't need. I had the Moroso studs here and if they would have fit I'd be done by now, APR studs are 3 times the cost of the Moroso studs.
Are there any other mfgs of long studs out there?

Moroso 1/2 admitted their mistake and sent me some new studs. Now saying they fit "after" you drill out [machine]your hubs to the right size. Having that done is as expensive as buying the APR studs at 3 times the price as the Moroso's. I am not buying complete hubs with long studs - no bank account for that.

Just a simple 1/2 inch spacer with 5 holes.
