ARP Wheel Studs don't work?

I dropped my car off at Mufflerman and I ordered my parts through summitracing and I got all of the right parts for the front and rears. Mufflerman just called me and told me the ARP studs don't have some grove that they need to go into the hub and told me none of the studs will work. Are they wrong or did I get the wrong parts? I remember the part number I got for the fronts are 7717 any ideas?

Well unless you have a one-off car the 7717s and 7708s are the "right" ones. They are too long for the stock lug nuts with caps but you can cut them down (what I did) or get different nuts (which I also did). The 7717s are for the front. I'll bet they tried the wrong one for the front or back. I wouldn't have any yo-yo work on my car

Why are you having a place called mufflerman work on your car?





Take it to Studman.

I'm having them do it because I go to school full time and also work I have no time to do it. And I'm up here now he said that the round part towards the end of the stud is too small on the arps.

I predict a wheel will be falling off this vehicle on the drive home.
I'll tell my Michigan friends to stay off the roads
