Looks like you can just loosen the wheel bearing assembly from the knuckle and it will slide right in?

Yeah you have to loosen off the wheel hub enough to clear the stud.
Install the stud at the innermost notch in the knuckle, on the caliper side of the knuckle for easier clearence.

A nut and washers will work fine.

Is this that GA from your place, or your Lumina that almost killed us?
