So far so good, I have 3000 miles on the studs. I used a hydraulic press to install the studs in the differential, and used three bond high strength retaining type loctite. By memory I torqued the nuts to 80 or 100 foot pounds, (but I think arp had a recommendation for the nuts).

I ended up using arp number 300-8338 for the nuts which have a small flange.
