weird. They're not that hard to snap off if you tighten them when you think your loosening them. The studs can be had from any parts store for a little over a buck and lordco should have some studs that are similar enough. But I have a whole bag of spare lugs and studs if you want to drop by and pick up a couple. I'll be out back working on supras all today and tommorrow if you want to stop by. I can show you how to install the new ones too, theres a little trick to it. My number is 604-431-0845 and I'm right next to metrotown.

Hey Dale, if your reading this and feel like stopping by too that would be cool.

thanks for the offer, but i've got to study for all of today and tomorrow for a midterm in the afternoon (summer session sucks :( ). Perhaps another time... maybe when the supra starts, and is insured, and I can drive it out there so we can oggle each others supras?

sure no prob. there will be a supra meet here in august sometime but it would be cool if a few of us could hook up before then. I'm in the same boat, 2 supras, neither insured right now. That will be remedied in august

sounds good... but only one of mine will ever run again. still have to get rid of that damn k car though... taking up valuable room.

also, does anyone know a rought price on car shelters? you know, those portable white tents you can put up? I think it woudl be a decent idea to grab one as i want to stave off more rust as much as possible.

I don't think any of the currently active mk2 van guys have been to any of my previous meets actually. We had a whole bunch of people at the last one, but most of those guys don't seem to be on this forum. It will be in August, still ironing out the fine details, like the exact date for instance :wink:

But it will be a very cool meet, I promise you that.

Back to the Lugs :) When I bought my car it also was missing a wheel stud. I replaced it plus the one opposite on the hub because the threads showed some wear. I presume from being driven with three lugs...the one opposite would take more stress I assume. So a year goes by and i am getting ready for a week long road trip and the night before i check the lugs for tightness. Well on the wheel I had replaced studs on I twisted another off...one of the ones I DID NOT replace. I spent the next morning fixing studs before hitting the highway :x So the moral of the story is: If you've got the hub off anyway just replace them all :roll:

Just had to tell this story - my wife drives our 83 Supra, and recently got some new tires for the back. I was going to put them on when I got home from work, but she decided not to wait - when I got home, she had managed to break off 3 of the studs on one side, and jam the remaining nut on so tight I had to torch it to get it loose. Seems she had been turning them the wrong way, and when she couldnt get them off, she put my 4-foot breaking bar on the lugwrench. So yah, new studs are cheap, and fairly easy to replace. I even fixed up her ebrake adjustment at the same time.
