I seem to have two wheel studs that are showing signs of wear,difficult to screw on lug nut. Any low cost ideas for replacement.

Sure. Stock are $2 per. Get 'em and replace. VERY easy job.

Shit -- I can mail you two extras if you want.

Thanks for the offer I will order some from the local toyota place, can you give simple instructions I have never replaced wheel studs before.

Terry - use some kind of a drift to bang out the old stud if it's broken. Otherwise just use a 5 lb sledge.

Then rotate the hub until it aligns such that you can slip the new stud in from the back.

Next, get some kind of ~1/2" thick cylindrical object to use as a spacer. An old pilot bearing will work. Place this over the new stud as it protrudes through to the front side of the hub.

Use a lug wrench and a lug to "suck" the new stud into the hub all the way.

Voila!

If that's not clear enough let me know and I can take some pics or something.

I thought someone mentioned H&R made some that worked for our car. They were a better length than I believe some of the better known ones that the drag guys use.
