Today I installed a new sway bar link to replace the one I had to destroy so I could install my front left strut. The new one seems to be an improved design. The washer is pressed on and has flat edges so I can use a wrench to hold it when the hex wrench gets stripped next time.


Installed:


Of course something has to go wrong every time I work on my car and tonight was no different. A stud decided to snap while removing the front left wheel. The others broke loose and spun freely, but this one just got harder and harder to turn until it just snapped >


I don't understand why it snapped. I always thread the nuts on by hand, so it shouldn't have been cross threaded. The lug nuts were torqued to 89 foot pounds as per the manual.

First off - "the one you had to destroy" - yea, riiiiiight -

Second off, I'll betcha that that stud you twisted off, was on the last lug nut that you took off - SMH - refer to "taking off wheels for dummies" book.

The old sway bar link wasn't exactly destroyed. More along the lines of permanently attached to my stock front strut.

As for the wheel, my procedure was:
1. Break lugs loose in diagonal pattern while the car was on the ground
2. Lift car, remove nuts
3. All nuts unscrewed easily by hand at first, then the third one started getting kinda tough, so I skipped it and moved on to the others
4. Go back to the third one and it keeps getting harder and harder to turn until it finally snaps

Does anyone know what size stud these cars take?

Well, OK, NOT destroyed - any good cutting torch can just get-er off -

Question: What did you use to break the lug nuts loose?

I'd guess the size of the wheel studs are roughly:

M12x1.25 thread pitch and length

I'm not too concerned about getting it off. I beat it up pretty good after the hex key stripped and it's not reusable.

To break the lugs loose I used a 1/2 inch drive breaker bar. To tighten them I used a 1/2 inch drive torque wrench.

Yep, I remember, back-in-the-day, when I did some wrenching, if I buggered up something, I would smash it to smithereens with a big fucking hammer - it didn't fix it but, it made me feel a hell of a lot better -

As far as lug nuts, anytime I have used this type of lug wrench, I've never twisted off a stud.

However, with the lug thing that comes with lots of cars and socket set breaker bar, not quite so lucky.

It's my understanding that the wheel studs on this car are weak - maybe they were made by the same folks that made the valve springs -

Yeah, it's always satisfying to smash whatever was giving me problems.

I googled the stud size and came across tons of forum posts about them snapping, numerus YouTube videos on how to replace them, etc, so this does seem like quite a widespread issue.

My search brought up this guy's BRZ blog post about how he kept snapping them, which was helpful because his post contained a part number (610566) for some hardened steel studs that are the same size as the stock ones. It's a Dorman part number, so my local NAPA, Auto Zone, or whatever should have them.

Bought the car in NE a few days ago, and it had a front plate/bracket installed, but we don't have/require front plates in KS. So, rather than driving around with a couple of ugly holes in the front bumper, I ordered a couple of Halo white bumper plugs. Excuse me... "World Famous Bumper Plugs":
