no! i mean i need one.
stupid ford torqued my lugswheel lo to tight so that when i went to put my new shocks on the wheel lock was cracked and i had to break the lug off
basically it stripped a stud and now i believe i have to get a whole new hub.

why do you need a new hub on a 2wd ranger?

the lugs come attached to your rotor, which has race and tapered bearings inside that are reusable

You can also get new lugs and press them in and out of your rotor. A decent shop would charge about 1/2 hr plus parts

You don't need a new disc, simply replace the wheel stud in question.


x2 to what Scott said above.

idk...call your napa.

wheel studs are only like $2 each. You can beat 'em into place using a hammer.

Well...you know how to remove the rotor. They're pressed into the rotor. Beat the bad stud out of the rotor with the outside of the rotor facing up. Then line up the new one on the backside of the holes on the splines, gently tap it in to get it started, then beat it in with the outside of the rotor on the ground.

You may or may not need to remove the ABS tone ring to do the job.
