Go to auto parts store and have them pull out the Dorman catalog and start researching studs......... .....they either make 'em or they don't............. ....

LD, when I did mine a few years ago, I could not find exact fit long studs (maybe they do them now?). Below was my solution using ARP studs. I had to have spacers machined otherwise the wheel lugs would not seat. I installed the studs myself using an old Cortina wheel by cinching down on the lugs as I taped on the backs. It worked great. What you see are 71 rotors that were cross drilled and coated for storage.

I drilled 4 new holes, tap them 1/2 20 and used ARP bolts which are 1/2-20 allen bolts that are threaded all the way to the head.  Easy in and easy out if you need to replace one. Got them from Jegs. BTW there is plenty of room for the new holes on the rotor. Worked for me.

If you use red you'll need heat to get them out.

Yeah, at like 650 degrees, you have to melt the Loctite before it comes loose. I'm not big on doing that on a good part. Blue, like mentioned, use more liberally, it still comes loose.
