    Putting my tires back on the other night and tore off a wheel stud. Put too much force I guess. Anyways, question is how do I replace them? Thanks

    6 lug. One off the rear passenger and one off the front passenger. (the one on the front was done a while ago, but never fixed it. Figured since now I tore off the rear one, might as well fix em both.

    You have to pull the axle out anf then hammer it out. then hammer to new one in and put the axle back together.

    Aww, you'll be alright, j/k. When I went to upgrade the 33" to 35" on mine I found that every wheel was missing a lug nut (6lug). No idea why all but 1 had the studs there just no lug, wierd. Had it fixed btw.

    If it aint a Chevy don't raise it up!

    I found that you dont have to take the axle out of the rear, If you take the wheel off and move it so that there is room behind the stud then you can tap it out. and when you go to put it back in just put some washers over the stud and use you lug nut to draw it in. For the front you have to take the rotor off and tapit out then tap it in.

    truyoopr is right I did the same thing on mine. On the front remove the brake caliper, take apart the locking hub remove lock nut and adjusting nut and pull off hub and rotor. Than take out stud and replace. Also a good time on the front to check wheel bearings.
