For those that don't know, I was driving his lumina around the other day when we were working on his '00. There was some nasty vibrations that got worse with turning, Andrew said it was a bad wheel, but I didn't really believe it... Seemed to get worse through the journey too.

He had 3 or 4 loose lug nuts..

i lost all five lugs in one fell swoop last year. had to replace them all.

i took the whole hub out, mounted it in a vise and pounded them out. then i hammered them in just far enough to hold them.

then i took the whole hub assembly and slapped it on the back of my spare tire. slowly and evenly i used an electric impact wrench to pull the studs through, carefull to not over-torque them.

took a little over three hours start to finish.
