longer wheel studs

anyone know if any vehicle uses the same diameter wheel stud for late 70's cj dana 30 but has more than an inch of threads.
I just got some wheel spacers and i'm a little concerned with the engagement of the lug nuts on the front spacers (spacer to hub) I'd feel much more confident if the entire nut was on the stud, rather than seeing some exposed threads due to the stud not being long enough. Like I said, the stock cj only has about an inch of thread, the spacers are 1.5" the rear ones seem to have plenty of length, but i'm not sure if it's because of the currie rear.

Original stud part # is 610-273. You can use Dorman 610-219. They are 3/8" longer. http://www.dormanproducts.com/p-10150-610-219.aspx

Did you ever purchase these studs? I am running into the same problem with short wheel studs on 1 1/2" spacers. I am wondering if the knurl fit well into the hubs? I had to weld my wheel studs to the rotor because they would spin and back out every time I took the wheels off pre spacers.

Don't recall off-hand which one's I ended up going with, I'll hafta see if I can see a number on the head of one. I do know that I had to grind the shoulder down a little because I was having a clearance issue.

I contacted Dorman and to see if they had something with the 610-273 spec in a 2 inch length. They say they don't. I may go with the suggested 610-219 but I am just trying to avoid having to weld anything to the rotors. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the issue I had with those studs was if I wanted to run without the spacers on the front there was a clearance issue with the shoulder and my wheel holes, but if I ground them down slightly they worked fine

I used 5/8'' acorn nuts with my adaptors, the thread sticking out was a good 1/2'', but the nut that come with the adaptors are 3/4'' long, loctite, torque allgood.
