    I have bought many new rear hub carriers because the ball stud just got pulled out of it.
    I even bought the upgraded aluminum version to solve this problem (that indeed works).

    Since I have multiple cars (vortex and raider) I never bought aluminum for all.
    Today I had to swap out my gearbox with a new one (due to ball bearing failure that trashed all internals in 10 seconds). Then I found that the ball stud connected to the gearbox is 3mm longer compared to the one on the hub carrier, see image:


    If you use this longer ball stud in the hub carrier you can screw on a m3 nut on the other side, making sure it never gets pulled out any more. See next image:


    I should have used washer, but I did not have it lying around.

    So just use the longer ball stud (AR330009) in stead of the original AR330171.

    This mod will work on: Vortex, Granite, Raider and Fury
