    If no one has messed with it and changed them out, then yes, it does.

    Yeah, mine where probably changed, but I don't remember my original (purchased new) '69 being LH threads. Then again, that WAS 47 years ago.

    IIRC, there should be a letter "L" stamped into the end of the stud if they are still left handed threads.

    My 69 Dart was my first experience with lefties. When the impact broke 3 studs off, I looked at them and said "What's this "L" for?". LOL! I was 17 and didn't know.

    Yea mine are left on one side. Never been changed. The idea was that the rotation of the wheel on that side would keep the lug's from coming lose. Use to find this on a lot of older cars. Not just runner think it started with the wagon wheel. :facepalm:

    Classic industries have both also replacement stud's if you want to make them all right handed. Check page 371 for the info in the book. Russ. :wave:

    I can believe this with first hand experience. I just put torque thrust D mags on the runner and rechecked torque after the first 50 miles or so, AND guess what.... Every nut in the right side of the car were slightly loose and needed a little tightening to bring them back to a 100 ft. Lbs... Every nut on the L, drivers side, were still tight...

    I sold my car but I have some lug nuts on the shelve. I guess that is a small start at getting another car.
