Does anybody know where I can get a stud and nut conversion from for a mk1 golf.
eBay, JJC , Demmon Tweeks , etc
Not necessarily the one you need but a starting place
Garage Midnight do very high quality motorsport ones, highly recommended
Why is that so cheap per stud but the sets are 80+
I'm going to buy some because I like them, they look cool and the balancing act isn't much fun.
Someone tell me what size thread I need?
Also could you not just use a threaded bar the same length?
This is what I use on mine Sam.
M12 x 1.5
later Golf's M14 x 1.5
You could use threaded bar, you could also replace your aux belt with a pair of stockings, never replace the cam belt and use second hand engine oil. Just because you can, doesn't mean it's a good idea. The purpose made studs are tempered so they don't stretch or shear.
Thanks, I'll get some when they come into stock.
Select the set, and then check again if in stock or not. When just landing on the page it will indeed say not in stock.
Unless I bought the last set last week.
Now I must say I tried to fit 1 bolt and 1 nut when being in the morning traffic jam, straight out of the package and the nut stops after 2 rotations.. found a small mark on the bolt.. Will be running it through the cutter, unless they all have it, then its back to sender..
Thank you for the link Toyotec.
I bought a kit from elite developments, took so long to turn up, i forgot I ordered it. Having a look at them, they are really long. I accidentally ordered 90mm when checking the order. I dont run spacers or anything, so are they going to stick out too much? I don't want to take them out of the packaging because then I can't return them.
What lengths do others run?
The elite ones look the same as the ones from garage midnight who suggest 90mm being for large spacers so would expect them to be a bit long. It's a shame they are the wrong thread or I would have bought them from you!
Guess they're going back then!
They're awfully heavy for 20 studs and nuts too.
Seems like Elite's site is down, but you can find similar online.
