is the bolt holding the front wheels on a suburban

Well, I think i made a mistake. I was taking the front left wheel off and i snapped the bolt off inside the spindle. is the bolt reverse threaded?

I believe it is reverse threaded. I have a 1967 Suburban 10 where I had the same problem. I snapped it off before I figured out it is reverse threaded. One thing you might try which worked for me is unthread/back out the stud that you snapped off, then reverse the stud and try threading it back in. If the end of the stud isn't too distorted you can get it back in the other way and there still may be enough thread left to get your wheel back on.

Yep sure enough, reverse threaded. this actually worked out sorta though because since i needed to drill it out, the drill and bit ran it out for me, which is good because i only have regular threaded easy outs! i won't do that again!

just an FYI for the next poor sucker, the front left is "lefty tightey" and the front right is normal "righty tightey"-at least it is on my 66 S12
