Default anyone know about how much this should cost?

I have a 1981 Chevrolet Pickup, and of course everything is customary on it. I also have a right new set of 15" rallyes with trim rings and center caps, but the center caps have to have certain lug nuts to put them on. The lug nuts that I have are metric, of course. So my dad went out and bought me a whole new set of the lug bolts that the lug nuts screw on to, metric of course, so I could put the center caps on. Does anyone know about how much it should cost to have the new lug bolts put on the truck?

Pull the caliper and wheel bearings off. The rotor will follow. Insert studs and re-assemble

*sigh*, no, only 2 wheel drive. She was grampa'* truck, though, so I'm happy with it. I tell ya what, though, I've bombed through some holes that 4x4 guys didn't want to touch. But I can do the lug bolts myself?

Yes, but you will need a socket to remove and re-torque the wheel bearing nut. You'll also need a small to med size tub of wheel bearing grease.

I'm hopeing that someone who is fluent in descriptive writing can run you thru the process

My uncle should be able to help me if it isn't that bad of a job. My dad made it sound horrible, though. I'll get a hold of my uncle, thanks for the help, though.
