These are the rims I'm using. As you can see there is a recess for the washer. The original studs are nowhere near long enough and I have longer ones to put in - hopeful they're long enough as I went by the Armada specs.
I have used Byron's $$$ flaring tool and yup it works great - so much better than the cheapo type you'll find everywhere. When I do my 620 lines I just might have to see if I can borrow his...
I acquired a set of '10 Armada alloy wheels for my project and attempted what should have been quite simple - buy some lug nuts. The ones I got aftermarket (Dorman) are too big in the shank (17mm) to fit into the rim holes (15mm). Tried another set, no different. Tried the dealer and what they show ...
There's a series of video by "Bluehands" doing a disc brake conversion on a 520 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylr6uuMNUGA) that may provide some useful info.

Hi gang, has anyone found a source for replacement body mount bushings? My need is specifically for a 620/720 but I suspect if anyone has a source they might be able to provide what I need. Original bushings are too old to consider for re-use.
Lots of work done since I last posted. I stripped down the 720 (reg cab long box) and had the 2 frames to compare - the forward box mounts will need to be relocated and the rear most mounts re-drilled 5cm forward. The 720 frame is slightly longer so will shorten it accordingly. Gas tank presents an ...
