    From my experience, I had the exact same nut not be tight once after an install, which resulted in an exhaust leak. IMO I would consider fixing the stud. How you go about doing that IDK.

    I can't really make out what you're trying to say so i'll guess. Don't they teach grammar in school anymore?

    The studs are replaceable. You can pick them up at the dealership. I had the same problem. Your best bet would be to put 2 nuts on the stud tight against eachother & get them out that way. Good luck.
