When Trail Gear tested the strength of 6 Stud knuckles, they found that running 6 OEM Studs on the 6 Stud knuckles was stronger than running 4 ARP Magnum Studs on a stock 4 stud knuckle. So, with this information Trail-Gear looked at ways to make it stonger than even running OEM and not the cost of ARP studs. Now, Stronger and longer than stock Toyota replacement knuckle studs and more affordable than our Magnum Studs these studs will provide great strength without breaking the bank. Each stud is constructed from a proprietary metal made exclusively for Trail Gear. These studs are manufactured to Trail-Gear's strict specifications and are significantly stronger than OEM standard (testing exceeded Class 12.9 standards). Trail Gear super metal knuckle studs are .250” (1/4”) longer than stock to accommodate all aftermarket steering arms. Like our Magnum Studs, TG super metal studs feature an integrated 8mm hex head for easy removal. These studs should be your first choice for knuckle hardware when repairing or upgrading your high-steer system.
We recommend using Locktight on the lower threads when installing knuckle studs. Studs should be tightened to 40 ft-lbs in the knuckles. Stud nuts should be tightened to 75 - 80 ft-lbs.
