Default extended wheel stud questions

i'm about to pull the trigger on some extended studs to run some spacers, but i want to make sure i get the right ****.

i'm looking at the arp studs since they seem to be the most readily available, but i'm open to other options, but i want to make sure i get the right ****.

from everything i've read, the na6 rear studs are a different part number than the 94-05 rear studs, so i want to make sure i get the right ****.

*ignore the 1995 miata in the screenshot.
i have a 91 chassis, but it's such a frankenstein (96 engine. 94 wiring harness) i just want to make sure i get the right ****.



vs



so take a look at my rear set up and help me get the right ****



and my illustration...



which studs do i get?

AND...
with the dust shield in the way, how do i install those studs in the rear?
please and thank you - also pardon all of my ignorance. i have no idea about brakes, wheels, et al.

Ricer ****? I like my ART studs because I can stick the lug nut in the impact gun and zip it on without having to start it by hand because of the rounded speed tip. And I like them for when I need to run spacers to fit borrowed hoosiers that are mounted on 6uls.

Then yes, you run 90-05 studs in the front and you run whatever year 90-93 or 94-05 that matches your rear hubs. I did my rears by pulling the hubs with a slide hammer (I was going to do wheel bearings but the upright and the longbolt have become one piece so that wasnt gonna happen) And then just put new front hubs on for the front hubs. Doing this with a press is glorious compared to using a vice/hammer/c-clamp/impact gun.

ARP's have also had the rounded tip since early 2012, and they don't snap off.

The pics of ARP's are all old, before the change.
