Are stock 2 inch studs long enough for a 5/16 wheel spacer?
I have 1994 mustang GT.
Yes, stock studs are fine.
Thanks i just wanted to know because i am getting new rear axles put in and don't know if i should got 3 inch.
The studs on the front are the same size as the rears correct?
I have 5/16" spacers on the front of mine right now, so I assume they will fit on the rear as well.
Yes the studs are the same all the way around in stock form. If they work for your fronts they should be fine for his backs.
Granted 3" studs wouldn't hurt anything.. But the stock ones should work if they worked for Ferocious.
TECHNICALLY NO IT IS NOT SAFE. anything over 5mm you should install longer studs. Or go with a hug centric spacer like an Eibach or H&R Your going with almost 8mm (7.9mm) I really don't think any spacer should be used on stock studs that is over 1/4". Then you say what's the point Your just aren't getting the bite you should.
You'll have all these people that say I run them which is fine let them. Many people have done it. You asked and I'm telling you no it's not safe.
I've been told by legit wheel shops to stay away from spacers.
Ive ran 5/16 spacer in the rear for well over 5 years without issue. As long as you have 6-7 threads on the stud with spacers in place you will have no problem.
If your axles are going to be out anyways now would be the time to upgrade.
