The original lower Wheel Stud/Axel was poorly designed and used a plastic material that could not stand the heat and lost its "springyness" so they had to be replaced. The new parts including the wheel stud/axel and new wheels (I replaced all 8!) were much better designed and of a nylon like material that should not wear out from heat. Intallation is easy but be warned. Be sure to snap the wheels onto the wheel stud/axel before you install the stud/axel. Once the stud/axel is installed you can't install the wheel because the stud/axel expands and it is difficult to remove. So put the wheels on the stud/axel first and then install the the whole wheel/stud/axel assembly at once. This is not obvious.
