Might check with Luke at US Coach 1-888-COACH34 or do what I am trying. I removed on of the studs and took it to a big truck parts store. I asked them if they could get me indentical studa 3/8" longer on the wheel part. I have to check with them tomorrow to see if they found any.  I will post the results here.  Jack

I thought MCI only had problems keeping stock on parts for the Dina coaches.  You would think a wheel stud for a 102A3 would be a common item.

The tie rods for my Dina were supposed to have been at MCI in mid May and they didn't show up until mid June.  Luckily, C&J got the part while my bus was still in the shop.

Brian I bought the last studs for a 102A3 from MCI around the first of the year (seriously the girl on the phone told me when I ordered them, that I was getting everyone they had instock!), but I sure would've thought they would've restocked by now!  Also what did ya find on the wondering in yer steering?
