Does anyone know if the 99 wheel studs are the same as the 2000 wheel studs
I stripped a stud last night and attempted to put one in myself. I hammered out the old stud (only took about 3 hits) and bought a new one from O'Reilly. I then tried to get the new one in using washers and a breaker bar to tighten the stud. The stud never went in all the way and I ended up stripping my new stud and nut. After my attempt I said f it and gave it to Kaufman tire.
Kaufman has me in their computer as a 99 mustang (my old mustang) and ordered me a wheel stud. They told me the stud didn't work and they ended up buying two more aftermarket studs and got nowhere with them. At the end of the night they came to the conclusion that the studs may be different for the 2000 mustang and they said they'd order me one from ford. If the ford one doesn't fit, then my spindle is crap.
So my question is, does anyone know if the 1999 front wheel studs are different from the 2000 front wheel studs. And if they are would they have damaged my spindle using the air gun?
