    If there is any thread left to examine- a flashlight will help you see the threads and the angle of the pitch.

    they should both be right hand thread as the axles are american made

    not like the old army trucks with left hand thread on the left side and right hand thread on the right side-it saved a lot of wheels and studs that way though.

    Usually a lug with left hand threads will have an L stamped on the center of the lug bolt. Mixed applications have an R for right hand threads, L for left hand threads.

    They are right hand thread, and probably have 160 ft lbs of torque on them. Eat your wheaties and use a flex handle, maybe with a pipe. Unless you're built like a gorilla, a ratchet ain't going to cut it.

    Thanks Jim and KennyV that's what I wanted to hear. I know some Jeep pickup's in the early 50s had right and Left hand lug bolts.
