Issues with rear drums

Recommended Posts

Sup guys hope someone can help me out or point at the correct direction.


I bought this dune buggy with a type 1 tranny and swing axle. But the moment I switch over to the sand wheels and tires the lug studs keep falling off (tighten with pressure)


Some say wheel is too thick or needed longer lug studs


please help. Shop told me they are 57’ and lower year drums

I’m thinking that kit should be good for you

Disc brakes are so much better

switch them and don’t look back😂


Are your studs blue loctite in

The holes in your drum look oval


i just went to studs on my other rail, hopefully I don’t have the same issue

Have had both Reg Wheels and Sand Wheels on them for one weekend, so far so good


the setup I got from SandBox is really good & disc😃

Ok wait

Lug Bolts are coming out?

Not Lug Stud with Lug Nut?


That is a mystery😬

There has to be something wrong with the drums

Did it happen on both sides?


Go studs

makes it so much easier to change out wheels when you need to

Yeah it happened on both sides, but my guess was that the drums are old. Came off a 57. Good luck to me finding a pair. So that’s why I just bought the conversion quick. 

what studs do you guys recommend?


That I couldn't tell you. I bought them here in Vegas at Butch's Speed Shop.


I would give these guys a call since you ordered the disc brake kit from them to ensure you get the right size:
