View Full Version : ARP Studs

So I'm going to be putting in my ARP studs, just wondering if I need to take off the whole steering arm or what would work best, to get them out and back in?

dammmm so that means I need to take off my king pin berrings? how the hell do I do that and put them back in???

I don't know how to preload them???

Have you ever even looked at a manual to see how they're assembled????

King Pins don't need to come out as the knuckle doesn't even get removed...
The ARP studs are only for the TOP so you don't even need to unbolt the stock bottom shit -- leave them in as it will hold the knuckle more solid while you're working on it.

I have a nut on the top of my OTT arm with the nut goes down into my knuckle with attaches to the king pin. I thought I'm not supposted to take out that nut? it's the one I fucked up when my arm tore off.

I'm I making any scence right here?

06-08-2007, 06:17 PM
I don't have those OTT arms like that and have never even dealt with them or heard of 'em.

SO I dunno if you gotta take out that nut to do the studs or not...[?] Try not to just by undoing the regular nuts and see if you can get at the studs enough to removed & install them.

Oh and eitherway the preload Needs to be reset. Try just putting the old shims back in, tighten it up and see if the knuckle is too tight or too loose to turn -- You need to remove the tierod & draglink to do this.

Are you serious????:eek:

Did you count the fawkin studs ya got? There should be 8 -- 4 for each side

06-08-2007, 06:33 PM
I think someone already did the other side

06-08-2007, 06:35 PM
Ya I did the other side when I tore the arm off.

and Yes I know 8 studs.

anyone want to help me???? a flat a beer to fix the hungar:dontknow:

Whew, you had me scared there that you were only doing one side... Curious why you've only done one side so far Seems pretty dumb to me since its not much work to do them both at once.

And FYI, arp makes both STEERING and HUB studs, so when you're talking to people make sure you mention which ones you're doing.

ok thanks, ya when I did one side I just wanted to get my junk out od dirka daves place. And I didn't have longs then.

so come on someone wnats to help me call me #778-881-6971

I still woulda done both sides at once, but I guess ya don't wheel it much, so stock studs hold up fine to the street.

And you don't just need ARPs with longs -- Your steering takes the same stress with stock birfs as longs. Only need the arp Hub studs with longs as the stock style birfs will break before the stock studs.
