At least I am not alone. I lost 5 off my front right side. When I stopped to check the wobble, four of the studs were laying on the ground where I stopped. The parts guy said he sells a ton of them. Had to go to a couple places to find 8, also got 4 extras just in case. Can you get these in a heavy duty setup? I am ready to go titanium or something if this is gonna continue. Only had the truck a month.

Are you guys running the factory wheels or aftermarket?

There are little spur washer retaining clips on some of the studs that you have to bust off if you run an aftermarket wheel. I learned the hard way too after breaking 3 studs. After removing the washers, I have had no more problems...even when jumping the truck and hauling heavy.

These guys carry Dorman studs, and are bout the best you can get.

Uhm, the place I linked above has the dorman studs for $3.66 before the discount...

And don't forget to get rid of the spur washers :cool:
