No, it will not because it's pressed together and that nut is tightened with over 200 ft lbs of torque. The studs can usually be changed without removing any of that. You may have to grind a flat spot of one side of the head for a little additional clearance to get it in.

Yeah, don't use a nut to draw them in. They make an installer tool that grabs a lot more thread so it doesn't strip.

I'll be real surprised if that kit is available that way.

If this is in multiple troubles it may be best to just get new hubs that come with the studs. Stinks but get new proper lug nuts too. Heck - this stuff is holding the wheel on!

Price out whole hub/bearings vs this craziness. Stay away from Chinese made important parts for things like this. Lower price is no bargain - trust me!

Comment: Made in China is common and made in USA, Canada, even Mexico and Israel was usually good but forget it as it changes so much.

Hey - please don't think I'm bashing China or people from anywhere. That country can make products fast and furious cheaper so others are uncompetitive - that's all,
