The description is the same for all the DRS sizes.
The 5mm spacers are so thin that hub center on the OEM hub is longer and passes completely through therefore, a hubcentric is not required on the spacer.
For the same reason, 5mm is so thin that the OEM studs are long enough, so the DR set would have been cheaper.
H&R of course wants you buy there studs.
Please don't misunderstand, there is nothing wrong with using the studs that cone with the spacers, just not necessary with only 5mm.

It is you car, do it the way you want.
Either way it is a very simple job that you can do yourself.
If you are not comfortable doing this yourself, I would be happy to help you.
We are talking about less than one hour work.
I can help you here as I have all the tools needed.

Interestingly enough... I called H&R and they said they did not have the DR series available for our cars. The car is also a family hauler, so I would like the piece of mind of having the studs installed and I trust in your abilities. I really appreciate the offer and would like to take you up on it. I’m going to owe you one though...

And Dave came through and provided the guidance. The studs were the same size as the H&R. So I tightened the lug nuts to spec and also tightened up the boost clamps (which were 1/2 turn loose). So, I’m happy with the 5mm spacers in the rear. Thanks Dave... 8AEDBD33-77E3-4407-A1A3-6EDB42DDD51B.jpeg 8AEDBD33-77E3-4407-A1A3-6EDB42DDD51B.jpeg

Hello all!

Finally back here, just picked up my FiST this week from Galpin Ford, I dropped it off on March 15th to have it checked for a transmission whining noise. And after more than 4 months, they finally fixed it. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

been seen going places,
the question is have you?

















This is one of my favorite drives. I used to go on the bike all the time. I'd love to take the FiST up there, but it's so far now that I'm down in SD.
