    double nut it with a washer between the 2 nuts tighten them together and then put your wrench on the bottom one and screw it out

    That is what I do, too.(double nut) But if you cant get them out new studs are cheap, look in your parts store's "Help" section.

    Yep, you can either double-nut 'em or use a stud wrench. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
