Don't forget cone washers, split washers, and nuts. If the studs shear those parts may either be missing or non-usable. In Kevin's case, two of the studs (and their attendant hardware) were simply missing. Who knows how long they had been gone? It is entirely possible that he had been driving on only 2 studs for a while.
