When you order the axles just tell them what wheels you have and the thickness of the hub and they will get you the right length lugs.

I have them on my car. use them with drag lites and my Bogarts.

I don't have pics but I think mine uses a 1/2 or 3/8 spacer.

They are well worth it compaired to the shank lugs.

Put wheel on then spacer then nut and tighten. No fighting with getting them lined up.

Talking

Here is another one for you do you have to enlarge the holes in the stock drums to use the 5/8 studs? And going to use the s/s axle package because its not somthing that will never see street use .

Yes the drums will have to be opened.

I have the Pro Race I drive it on the street 90% of the time. Drive it with respect and you will be fine.

You will need to enlarge the holes bigger than 5/8 because of the solid sleeve over the 5/8 studs. I think 11/16 comes to mind. In the end though it is a much more rigid setup then shank style 1/2 lugs.
