    I am trying to replace the wheel studs on my 14sf and I have no idea what I am doing. I was told since it was switched to disks I had to pull the axle shaft out. How do I do that?

    Take out the bolt on the right side in the carrier, then that block will come out (that actually looks like a bol tot hold the carrier togather. If its not that bolt then spin the carrier 180* and there should be a bolt, usually 8MM head), then you can push the axles in and the c clips will fall off. Since its disks, youll have to take off the calipers before the axle will push in.

    I got it, thanks. Now when I take the shaft to get the new studs put it do I need to take them somewhere and get them pressed in? Or do I just tap them in with a hammer?

    Use a brass hammer to remove the wheel studs. If you use a regular hammer, it will "mushroom" the top of the studs, and they will not come out the hole that they are seated in.

    You should try to install them with a brass hammer because it will not hurt anything, but if that does not do it, then you may have to have them pressed in.
