I have a 97 mazda protege lx and .I've used an allen wrench to hold the stud, but it only goes so far. The bolts will tighten to a certain extent, but then they get so tight that I actually stripped the allen wrench hole in the center of the stud.

Do you
have the same problem?

Are you sure that isn't as far as they should be? Are you cross threading?
