replacing studs

Post by lweeezy188 » Mon Jun 02, 2008 10:57 pm

What is the fastest/easiest way to replace the studs on the passenger front, can i just take off the caliper and do it then or do I have to take the whole hub assembly off??

I know on the several hubs that I have had to replace studs on there is an opening on the backing plate to remove/replace damaged studs. Get the brake disc off and look at the back side of the hub and you should see it.

I don't even take my brakes off. usually im replacing them because they're broken anyway, so I hammer them out. (Yes, I know that it's not good for the wheel bearings) Then I pop the new one in, put a bit washer over it and tighen a lug nut on it to seat it in. Not the best way, but that's how I do it.

Thats actually pretty much how to do it, minus the hammer beating them out and substituting out a strong c-clamp.
