well dam that realy sucks. not to hard to do. but try to get them pressed in rather then puting a nut on the end to pull it through. i was told this weakens the stud. now im not 100% poss on this but its sound logical to me.

if you have to pull them through with the wheel lug ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

ive only had to replace studs on 1 car and that was easy casue it was a rear wheel drive car. i tightned the lug way to tight i guess. (realy dont know why it broke).

I have a "wheel stud press," you can buy a nice one off of the Snap On truck, thats where I got mine. You can probably get a crappy one from Harbor Freight if you are lucky.
