Is the socket for the factory torx studs the "E10"? As in "external #10"?

Edit: It's an E12, but apparently you can get by with a 9mm 12 point socket.

I got Brian's because he's a Colorado vender.
Also, I don't think trail-mart was selling 'em at the time I got mine.

I also have ARP hub studs.

Went over to Olegs because I wasn't able to get the bolt out without disassembly.

Turns out only the bolts were stripped and there was a second one that Oleg thought had an issue that needed replacing. The mangling on the bottom of the right one is from working the bolts off and on.

Oleg thinks I may have torques them too much.

The new OEM studs look much beefier. Put two in with the red loc-tite and I am golden

Thanks Oleg

Most of the damage on the right was caused by the nut and multiple nuts I tried and then finagling to try and get it off.

I was very lucky that the knuckle was fine. I like the new OEM studs. I need to get an E12 socket now. woohooo a new tool

I put those new studs on three of my other 80s and plan on doing the same soon on the LX. They make torqueing them a cinch. I'm surprised you didn't already have those.

IF those are the studs that came out, then you have an issue with the knuckle. Those threads (other than the part where you say the nuts screwed it up) look fine. Did you pull the arm to check the knuckle. I have seen plenty of them stripped.

Now you give input

I took it to Oleg's and he worked on while I was at work. He said the knuckle checked out and the problem I was having was from the threads were the nuts were and the nut was spinning and not the bolt.
