    Hi Eric.

    I hope this message finds you well. I’d appreciate your input in regards to my trucks current situation.

    Topic: Auto parts store wheel studs, installed on a new front wheel bearing hub assembly; bought from the dealership.

    Side Note: Sinking brake pedal after being bled since new hub installed

    Mods:
    8″ lift
    35*13.5*20 federal tires
    1/4 wheel spacer

    Background:
    200k KM on the odometer. I recently installed a front wheel bearing hub.
    Since then, my wheel fell off while driving; twice.

    1.
    Truck was recently brought out of storage, since installation of the hub assembly. Wheel fell off driving and the 1/4 inch wheel spacer – shattered.
    Tire was reinstalled on the remaining 6 out of 8 wheel studs, without the wheel spacer.

    2.
    Truck was OK driving for 3 days, going to and from work.

    3.
    New studs came in from shipping and were installed.
    I hammered out the broken studs. After removing and placing hub on a firewood round; hammered in the new studs. The wheel bearing hub came from the dealership. I drove roughly 1km and my wheel fell off with no spacer applied.

    4.
    (6) wheel studs from the auto parts store were inserted via hammer, whilst stranded along the highway. New 1/4 spacer bought and installed.

    5.
    Crawled truck home.

    5.
    Installed new master cylinder. Currently, awaiting on a helper, to assist in bleeding. No fittings came with new master cylinder so, bench bleeding was not available at this time.

    6.
    Did I mess my new hub up by hammering the studs in both times?

    7.
    Thank you for your feedback and have a good night.
