  • Front Axle / Front Suspension: Lug Bolt Replacement

    The 58 truck I'm working on has some busted lugs. Does any one know the part# and procedure for replacing them?
    I'm sure it's not just a press-out and back in, as I've seen the procedure here somewhere before, but I just can't find it through the search....

    I'll need the part# as well if someone has that. I think the parts book has it as 523702.

    I haven't found the SI number yet or another replacement type either.

      Place the drum in a hydraulic press support around the lug with a large socket and press out. To install start the lug in the hole and tighten the nut with an air tool, as it tightens up you will run out of thread remove the nut and place some washers on the lug and continue tightening until it is home. They can be pressed in with the hydraulic press also.

        If the lug studs have been swedged, (expanded at the drum face to secure the stud) you need to grind that extra metal off before pressing the stud out or the drum could be damaged.
