I've got my eye on some forks on 'bay but the seller has mislaid the brake studs.

My question is are the studs all the same or do they need to be specific to the fork? (Manitou SX-R)

They are generically the same but all different :D
You get M6 and M8 threads, short ones and long ones. I wouldnt worry about it though, someone will have a dead fork with the right ones on them.

as above, nearly the same. Marzocchi need superlong posts with spring plates for v/cantis. Some take shorter etc..
