Re: rear wheel stud question
I would try the conicals first like BPOS suggests, may save you some trouble.
If you have stock length studs, you probably need to refresh anyway with 1.5" new studs if you have drums.
I replaced my studs with 2 1/8" (seems to be a standard size, NAPA) , disc brake upgrade, Rushforth Livewires, and when using new conicals I bought with the Rushforths, the conicals botomed out before torquing correctly. I had to go back to standard centric type lugs as I wasn't about to shave the new studs down.
