  • Left hand thread wheel lug nuts

    Hi guys -

    I'm ready to replace the wheel hub/drums on my 55 Commander. So - which side of the car do the hubs with the left hand threads go?

    I could, of course, replace them the way they were when I took them off, but there's no reason to believe that the previous owners of the car had them correct. Based on everything else I seen done to this poor thing.

    For some reason, I can't find this information in the manual or parts book.

    Thank,

    Frank - I think it's the left (driver's) side. They stamped an "L" on the end of the studs, to be sure. Are you replacing right-threaded studs with the left for authenticity?

      Hi Tom -

      Thanks. No, I'm just trying to put drums back on - half of them are RH thread and half are LH thread.

      I'm thinking I'm needing a complete rear axle assembly for this thing - got anything like that (maybe I asked you before)?

        Studs stamped "L" are left, driver's side. Be sure you use the correct nuts. Notice I didn't say right nuts?
