Question about 1987 Ford Bronco II
I bought a 1985 Ford Bronco II from a friend yesterday. I started hearing a weird sound when I was driving it. I got it up to about 40 mph and the wheel popped off. The lug nuts were stripped off. I replaced the lug nuts with some from a local aftermarket parts store. Then I drove it again this morning to work and the same exact thing happened. Any possible cause for this problem? Is it actually worth fixing or should I demand my money back? I paid $800 for it.
Replace the wheel studs as well as the nuts. Make sure you have the correct wheel for the vehicle and that it is sitting flat on the hub flange. If the bolt holes in the wheel are elongated, do not use the wheel. Make sure that the lugs are threading onto the studs at least the diameter of the stud (eg: A 1/2" stud diameter needs to go into the nut a minimum of 1/2") otherwise it can pull off and destroy the threads.
