Re: [FWDLK] Left hand lug nuts



 
If your 1973 Charger had LH nuts, they weren't put there by the factory.  The last year Chrysler used them on their cars was 1970.  And they were on the driver's (left) side of the car.

Hello,
Thanks for the FYI guys.  I know my 73 Charger has them on the driver's (or left) side.  I took it in for an alignment at a local shop and when I got it back it had 2 lugs on the front broken off.  The guy tried to tell me they were frozen and that he was a "mopar" guy and knew about the nuts.  Good trick considering I had just replaced the ball joints and all the front suspension rubber pieces myself.  People like that I tell to go work on a Honda, and leave my blessed Mopars alone.  It was my fault though, I should have checked them out better.  Live and learn.  As for the other parts, let me know when I can get a kenueter valve.

R-R-R,
Chargin'Charles--->>>

    Well first of all, I believe the driver's side is LH thread, not the passenger as the article indicates. Also, anybody who calls themself a mechanic should be full aware that things go both ways like that.
    On another note, anyone know where I can get a lower radiator hose for my Corvair? Or maybe some muffler bearings?

  has a nicely written article regarding Chrysler's left hand threaded lug nuts and explaining why the practice was dropped and where it came back too!

  Good reading.
