I got some replacement wheel studs (p/n 7409554) for the left rear axle of my M813 from Erik's Military and they're about 1/4" shorter than the originals. Other sites list this same p/n for both the front & rear but they look like maybe they're fronts only?

Can I run 2 of the 10 studs 1/4" short?

Someone had put a 939 stud in the hub at some point. They are longer and come in various forms. Hint as to why you need a shoulder recessed lug nut for HEMTT wheels on an 809 series vs you don't on A 939

Ok, I'm picking up what you're laying down. My calipers say the new studs match the parttarget.com nominal dimensions for what my NSN should be. The studs (and not just one) must have been replaced before my truck was CARC'd in 2001 because they're painted on the front but are still fresh yellow zinc on the back where the paint doesn't reach. Maybe when I go super singles I can replace these two new studs again and go with standard lug nuts on the rear 😉
