Ideally the stud does not move. I loctite them in with blue loctite. I prefer studs with a stop on them so you screw in until they stop. I usually get hex key ends to make the screw in easier. They don’t take much torque—might be 20 lbs but read the instructions for the spec. If no hex end, then double nut.

This is true, there is also a correct way to install them.

It was also the most recent item I noticed they had installed incorrectly, rear coil springs upside down and knocking, the boost gauge tapped pre throttle body (who needs vacuum?), wire routing is just plain lazy in the engine bay, pretty much everything they did is a bunch of half assed professional install work. Nothing broken or damaged, just looks really amateur and rushed.

Overall the vehicle is in terrific condition after having spent time in IL.
