    I am going to purchase a disc brake kit from MBM. The 12" ones aka 11.75" rotors that look alike to the doctor diff ones. I want to keep the LH thread wheel studs on the drivers side and wanted to know if anyone knew what part number to order to replace the wheel studs for these rotors?Thanks in advance!

    Scarce as hen's teeth so you would almost think they were illegal. Coker claims to sell them. A lot of people will give me hell for suggesting this, but the easiest solution to this situation is to pull the drums and have someone with a press remove those left hand thread lugs. Don't hammer on them or you'll ruin them. I don't think anyone judging your car will take points off for improved safety using right hand studs.

      Will the drum studs work? I didn't know if they were the same length etc. I just don't wanna mess with RH studs until I swap the rear axels, probably next year with a new diff

      I looked up 1977 Cordoba wheel studs on Dorman and 1967 Coronet drum studs, the only difference is .004 knurl diameter. Would it be safe to press out my old ones, they're in good shape, and reuse them?

      Give it a try, do just one and compare the length and knurl size. If it works, you just saved a bit of cash. After all you're not going back to drums.

        I’m sure it’ll be fine, worth a shot anyway. I recognize that car from Instagram... trailerparkginger?

            You need to see what is on the rotor? The Knurl Dia can be different, the length of shoulder needed, etc... Frankly with non OEM rotors to start, your not going to get any points for LH studs. You may also find that you distort the Chinese rotor removing studs. Matters if they were swedged or not. Go look at my post on 70-72 Rotor I just posted. Drum studs and rotor studs are different, and I am believe you see a difference between one piece and two piece rotor studs too.
