I have started taking apart my front suspension and pulled the front left wheel off only to find I could push out all the lugs in the hub with my finger. The splines in the hub are almost gone and the studs have been replaced with new ones (previous owner--im guessing he forgot they were lefties and broke them all off) My question is should I go to the junkyard and find another hub or is it ok to tack weld the studs into the existing hub from behind? (I am a certified welder) I also noticed that my drum came off with no problem....isnt it supposed to be attached to the hub somehow? the term swedged comes to mind. I have several cars in the junkyard to choose from. 1967 newport custom 383.
