Angry Size Matters ... Studs Wanted

Sorry, I couldn't resist the title.

Anyway, I’ve hit a snag on my suspension upgrade and I need some help.

I have to use longer wheel studs on the rear, but I can’t find what I need.

The only closest sizes I can find are:

1/2"-20 x 3" Press-in, 0.615" diameter knurl and quick start dog end, fits most disc brake Fords front and rear and Chrysler front.
Standard hole size: 0.606" to 0.613"

1/2" -20 X 3" Press-in, 0.594" diameter knurl and quick start dog end, fits 1979-03 Mustang. Also has flat on head for front hubs with ABS.
Standard hole size: 0.580".

I’ve pressed the original studs out of the Cobra hubs and took some measurements. The hole for the studs is right at 0.600”. Which is too big the 0.584” diameter knurl and too small for the 0.615” diameter knurl.

Do I ream the holes to 0.606 and use the 0.615” or what?!?

Never mind.

I just order the recommended studs from Moser Engineering (their prices can be beat elsewhere, but I figured I'd order them while I had them on the phone).

Part #: 8010 (1/2"-20 x 3" .615 knurl (Ford) press-in)

I should have them by Friday.
