Anyone have a suggestion for rear wheel spacers for the ole 95 OBS?

I heard arrowcraft was good quality but I am getting the runaround from them.

I find it very hard to believe that they cannot source 9/16-18 studs.

Bunch of bullshit if you ask me.
I can't give my money away.

They about $5.30 each from advance auto. Even better would be a you pull it yard. Probably get the whole set of 32 for about $10. No need to question what they can or any get based on how hard it is to get dumb shit the past 2 years.

Fred Goeske makes the best spacers I've ever laid hands on for duallys. They're a little spendy, but I've had them on every dually I've ever owned. Towed heavy back and forth across the country and pipeline ROW's and ranch roads never hurt one. I just put a set on my dodge. Took a little bit to get the steel to make them but they're grade 10 steel and worth it.

Yeah...
Fred buys them from arrowcraft and marks them up.

I’m curious with your vast knowledge, why are you asking us minions?

In the words of the great John cougar Mellencamp

"I know a lot of things, but I don't know a lot of other things"

I was just wondering if anybody had a lead on any other company besides arrowcraft that actually makes high-quality billet steel spacers.

I may still go for the arrowcraft
But if I do I will change the front studs to match the back.

Might seem silly to some but
I just want all my Lugnuts and threads to be the same.

Thanks for offering no useful information.
But I did find your wise ass remark quite amusing.

About as useful as you replying to 10 year old threads and blaming it on software....

Arrowcraft and Fred’s are who I’ve ran. The the current Fred’s, I’ve loaded way too heavy and they are rock solid. BUT... as you’ve already educated us minions, they’re one in the same as arrowcraft.

If you approach doing business with companies like you do on here (and the email screenshots above would seem to confirm that), no wonder you can’t give your money away. It’s way less ass ache to turn your business down than deal with your BS.

Listen here Junior

I'm not here for your stupid opinions.
I reply to 10 year old threads only because it bothers you.

You are an easy mark.

As far as my e-mail approach, it was nothing but professional.

I did not show you the additional emails that were sent back to me.
The reason why they do not offer The studs I need is because it is not a well sought after item. (Anymore)
That's the problem with these old trucks I reckon.

Anyway they are looking into sourcing the studs for me (at a premium price which I agreed to)
But it is still cheaper than somebody that buys from arrow craft and Mark's things up for a quick buck.

And furthermore Junior, I don't come here for your infinite wisdom.
I've done more in my life than you will ever accomplish in half of yours.

But I still like you.
you have potential.

Peace and love

Lmao!! Pure forum gold right there!

I nearly forgot that you were so smart that when you were trying to buy a used set of rims from someone, you thought that they were wrong about the bolt pattern on your truck. Silly me...

Do you practice that “I am the smartest guy in the room” when you’re in the bathroom and looking at the mirror every day, or just on Tuesdays?

Bless yore heart

To set the record straight,
I was simply asking for the wheel stud spacing in a 1995 vs newer trucks.

Nothing shameful about that.

Better to be sure about things before laying down cash.


I don't claim to be a know it all.
But Im certainly smarter than you.

Why do you want steel? As long as its t6 6061 aluminum, you wont have issues. I had t6 6061 between the rear duals on ole whitey that strokerace bought from me years prior and i loaded the ole girl to the hilt and never had issues, as many others have as well. Just source somewhere else that uses the studs you want as long as its t6 aluminum.

Yeah I might not have any choice if I can't find the steel ones.

I agree
The t6 IS very strong.

I have welded various grades of 6061 for different projects and it has always held up good.
