Big brake upgrade

I'm in the process of completing the front big brake upgrade using the volvo calipers and E21 (1977) rotors. OK, Here's my question. The old set up (1975 2002 Hubs) had the wheel studs pressed into the hubs and the hubs bolted directly to the hubs. The hubs from the 1983 E21 were purchased off of ebay and have no studs. They are threaded and I'm not sure how this works. Do the 1983 hubs just have the studs thread through the wheels, through the rotors into the hubs. Like a long bolt? Or do the studs thread through the rear of the E21 hubs holding everthing in place from the rear out? I know this sound stupid but this is my first run around with the 2002. Please help.

The bolt goes threw the wheel, then the rotor, then the hub. It is just a wheel bolt. THere are no studs. Im not sure where you are going to find the bolts but I might have an extra set around here if you are intereasted.

Thanks,

Andy!

Let me do some checking and see if I can locate two sets locally. If not I'll let you know.
