PostSubject: front drum removal   Fri Dec 23, 2011 12:50 am

I tried loosening the lugnuts on my front brake drum and it won't loosen for the life in me. Is the stud turning when I turn the lugnut or what? It is the tightest lugnuts I have ever dealt with. Any ideas to what is going on?? Over torqued with a air gun?

Steve, Now on the early Mopars one side is reversed threads, All my cars have been changed ovet to right but I don't know which is which, I know Big M or somebody will be on here a little later to tell you. So what you might be doing is tightening instead of loosening. Smile

OH boy, I am glad to get help on this! THANK YOU for the info guys. I have never owned a vehicle that had this kind of setup or even ran into anything siimilar. At least I can quit trying
to turn them the wrong way and actually save myself from breaking my arm or tools! Razz

Sort of thought that was the problem, I have an updated rear end and disc brakes so everything I have now are right handed. I like it like that Smile
